Arizona QB Foles out against Washington
The good news is that Arizona quarterback Nick Foles’ season is not over.
The bad news? He will be out of action when the Wildcats host Washington in a Pac-10 matchup Saturday night.
ICONArizona QB Nick Foles will miss the game this week against Washington with a knee injury.
Head coach Mike Stoops said Foles’ right knee injury is not season-ending and the star quarterback’s status will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis. The 6-5 junior went home to Austin, Texas, to have the knee re-examined and for a few days of therapy.
Foles, who ranks second nationally in completion percentage (75.3) and leads the Pac-10 in passing at 306 yards per contest, was injured less than a minute into the second quarter of last Saturday’s 24-7 victory at Washington State.
Stoops labeled the injury a sprain after the game and was optimistic about how the knee responded over the weekend.
Matt Scott, who started the first three games last season before Foles took over, will start against the Huskies. The junior is known as a better runner than passer and has completed 22 of 33 passes for 220 yards with a touchdown and one interception this year.
After the game against the Huskies, Arizona goes on the road to face UCLA before dealing with a difficult stretch of at Stanford, home against USC and at Oregon before finishing the regular season hosting Arizona State.
