SEATTLE (AP) Washington has suspended star tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins indefinitely following his weekend arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence.

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian told reporters of the decision following the Huskies spring practice late Tuesday night. Sarkisian said Seferian-Jenkins would have no contact with the team while he is suspended. His status will be re-evaluated once the investigation into his incident is complete.

Seferian-Jenkins was arrested following a car accident late Saturday night. A police report said the driver of a vehicle involved in a weekend accident had a bloody nose consistent with hitting his face on the windshield and the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Seferian-Jenkins was a third-team all-American selection by the AP last season.
