Washington’s Fogerson practices despite suspension

Suspended Washington running back Johri Fogerson participated in

the Huskies’ first day of spring football practice Tuesday.

Fogerson was suspended after he was arrested for investigation

of resisting arrest and possession of 40 grams or less of marijuana

by police on March 3. He was taken into custody after running from

police following a traffic stop.

Coach Steve Sarkisian said after practice that since they aren’t

playing games right now he didn’t have to lift Fogerson’s

suspension for him to be able to participate. He added that

Fogerson is still enrolled in school and a member of the football

team and that as long as that is the case, he will continue to

practice with the team.
