The Wildcats are getting healthier, and not a moment too soon.
Set to face off against No. 9 UCLA in Tucson Saturday, No. 16 Arizona appears to be getting one of its best players back into the fold.
Wright was officially listed as “questionable” on the team’s injury report, released Thursday.
Wright injured his knee during the first half of Arizona’s season opener against UTSA. Shortly after the game it was revealed he hurt the Meniscus, with projections saying he could return either for this game or next week’s against Stanford.
Wright emerged as one of the best players in the country last season, tallying 163 total tackles — 29 of which were for loss — along with 14 sacks and six forced fumbles. He was the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year as well as a unanimous All-American. He won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy as the country’s best linebacker, as well ast he Rotary Lombardi Award, Chuck Bednarik Award and Jack Lambert Award.
