Washington dismisses two players

H-back Joshua Perkins and walk-on running back Willis Wilson have been dismissed from the Washington football team due to a violation of team rules, coach Steve Sarkisian announced Thursday.

A statement issued by the university said Sarkisian and the school would have no further comment on the dismissals.

After Deontae Cooper suffered his third ACL tear on the first day of fall camp, Wilson was seeing time in the running back rotation behind Bishop Sankey and Jesse Callier. The loss is a hit to the Huskies' depth at that position.

Perkins, a redshirt freshman, began his career as a receiver.
