Notes and highlights from Day 9 at UW spring football:

— After letting loose a bit on Monday, Jake Browning was pretty limited again Wednesday, though he did take his first spring snaps during an 11-on-11 period and completed his only pass attempt out of the end zone for a short gain to TE Drew Sample.

Vita Vea, all 344 pounds of him, continues his productive spring. During an O-line vs. D-line drill, Vea was roughing up the opposing guards.

Carta-Samuels to complete a nice goal-line stand for the defense.

— In an earlier 11-on-11 series, redshirt freshman CB Byron Murphy had another interception, this one off the hands of a receiver. That’s at least four interceptions this spring from Murphy, who looks more and more ready to take hold of one starting corner spot.

Those helped set up Tristan Vizcaino for a 45-yard field goal to close practice. The kick was good, meaning UW coaches — in the first time we’ve seen this — had to line up for one…
