Husky Football Schedule
The Washington Husky Spring Football game will be held on Saturday, April 22nd. It’s highly unlikely Jake Browning will be playing in that game. The team will likely have Tony Rodriguez, Jeff Lindquist, Blake Gregory, Daniel Bridge-Gadd and K.J. Carta-Samuels active for the game. The team also has 2017 recruit QB Jake Haener in the mix for the 2017 season.

It is very unlikely that Jake Browning will suit up for this game.
The Huskies’ regular season begins on September 1st on a coast to coast road trip to Piscataway, New Jersey to face the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. As of now, Browning will very likely be suited up and ready to go for the season opener.
With his shoulder fully healed, Browning should be far more effective to close out this season. It was the Seattle Times’ Adam Jude who first reported the shoulder injury to quarterback Jake Browning in mid January. He followed up with a second article on February 1 to confirm that Browning’s status was determined to be “doing well” by head coach Chris Petersen.
"“We’ve already had a plan — you know, Jake is one of those guys that just loves to throw and throw and throw,” Petersen said. “So from really when he got here, we’ve been trying to back him off (after) these long years, to make sure. And so he should be fine for spring ball, but also want to give these other (quarterbacks) some really good work in spring ball.” – Chris Petersen per Adam Jude’s interview"
And so, there was a little ambiguity here. Yes, Jake Browning is right on track. Yes, He will be fine for spring ball. He may even be throwing by then. But don’t panic when he isn’t suiting up for the annual Spring Football game.
He will be good, but he won’t be THAT good.
