Just last week, the Arizona Wildcats welcomed linebacker Scooby Wright’s return after he missed two games because of a lateral meniscus tear suffered in the season opener.
Unfortunately, the Wildcats will again be without Wright for several more weeks after he was diagnosed with a right foot sprain suffered in his return against UCLA, reports the Arizona Daily Star’s Zack Rosenblatt.
In addition to being without their star middle linebacker as they travel to Palo Alto, Calif., to face Stanford this weekend, the Wildcats may also be missing their starting quarterback.
Sophomore Anu Solomon was diagnosed with a concussion following the loss to UCLA.
Solomon took a knee to the head while sliding at the end of the run in the first half of Arizona’s 56-30 loss to UCLA.
“We don’t know about Anu’s status just yet so it’s going to be a week that we’ve kind of got to prepare for both scenarios,” Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said on the Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Monday.
Jerrard Randall will be the starter for the Wildcats if Solomon is not cleared. Randall completed 4-of-16 passes for 45 yards, a touchdown and an interception against the Bruins while also rushing 16 times for 128 yards and a touchdown.
