Arizona HC Rich Rodriguez says sophomore QB Khalil Tate (shoulder) should be "good to go" for the Foster Farms Bowl on Dec. 27 against Purdue.

"He’s fine," RichRod said. Tate suffered a sprained left (non-throwing) shoulder during the regular season finale at Arizona State. He ranks No. 15 in the nation with 1,353 rushing yards despite barely playing in the team's first four games.
Dec 4 - 4:09 PM

Arizona sophomore QB Khalil Tate sustained a left shoulder injury in the first quarter of Saturday's loss to Arizona State.

There was speculation that Tate was being benched in the second half due to performance or the like, but after that game, Wildcats HC Rich Rodriguez clarified that the electric sophomore was nursing an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. Hence the sidelining. His status for the team's bowl game will be determined in the coming weeks.
Nov 25 - 8:28 PM

Arizona redshirt junior QB Brandon Dawkins completed 4-of-8 passes for 62 yards with an interception and ran for 71 yards and a touchdown in a 42-30 loss to Arizona State on Saturday.

Dawkins took over for Khalil Tate (undisclosed) late in this one, and as usual, the junior quarterback showed impressive speed, and less-than-impressive passing ability. His rushing score was a 50-yard jaunt that brought the Wildcats within five at 35-30. Unfortunately for he and Arizona, they couldn't stop the ASU run game, and the offense wasn't quite the same without Tate. We'll see if Dawkins gets another start in the Arizona bowl game if Tate can't go.
Nov 25 - 8:03 PM

Arizona sophomore QB Khalil Tate (undisclosed) is currently on the bench in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against Arizona State.

Just what is currently up with Tate is unclear. He did not start the second half, but returned to the game before again being brought over to the bench. There's some speculation on Twitter that he is not actually injured, but rather was pushed aside for Brandon Dawkins due to his on-field play. This whole situation should see some clarity after the game.
Nov 25 - 7:22 PM

Arizona sophomore QB Khalil Tate completed 18-of-35 passes for 159 yards with two interceptions and a touchdown, and ran for 32 yards on 13 carries in Saturday's 48-28 loss to Oregon.

The Ducks clearly had a plan tonight of keeping Tate in the pocket and from running the football, and it worked. As a starter, his lowest rushing game coming into this one was 146. Not only did Tate struggle to get going on the ground, he didn't make plays with his arm, and threw two costly interceptions. He'll look to rebound next week when the Wildcats take on the Sun Devils of Arizona State.
Nov 19 - 12:20 AM

Arizona senior RB Nick Wilson scored twice and ran for 73 yards on Saturday in a 48-28 loss to Oregon.

With Khalil Tate unable to get anything going, Wilson was the rushing attack in this one. He opened the scoring with an 18-yard burst, and his 20-yard trip to the end zone briefly gave the Wildcats another lead at 21-14. The senior tailback will close out his regular season career next week when Arizona takes on Arizona State.
Nov 18 - 10:38 PM

Arizona senior RB Nick Wilson carried the ball 17 times for 101 yards and a touchdown in a 49-21 beating of Oregon State on Saturday.

Three players (Wilson, Khalil Tate, JJ Taylor) were able to run for over 100 yards, and five players scored rushing touchdowns. Who says you need a passing game to compete in the Pac-12? The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Wilson has battled an ankle injury, but looked healthy in this one. Arizona's running game is borderline unstoppable right now, and Wilson and the rest should have no trouble running against the Ducks next week.
Nov 12 - 1:35 AM

Arizona sophomore QB Khalil Tate completed 5-of-7 passes for 68 yards with an interception, and ran for 206 yards and two scores in a 49-28 victory over Oregon State on Saturday.

Tate is fast. Really, really fast. The Oregon State defense had absolutely no chance of stopping the sophomore quarterback, and if Arizona was gluttonous, he probably could have run for over 300 yards in this one. The passing wasn't pretty, but it doesn't need to be. His touchdown runs were a 19-yard scamper in the second, and a 71-yard blow-by in the third. Tate and the Wildcats will try to run all over Oregon next week.
Nov 12 - 1:32 AM

Arizona freshman DL Kurtis Brown (concussion) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Oregon State.

Brown (6'1/285) did not play in Saturday's loss to USC due to concussion-like symptoms. He remains in concussion protocol. Barring late medical clearance, it looks like the true freshman will probably be sitting this weekend. He's seen relatively little of the field this season, having recorded seven tackles (2.0 for loss) and a sack.
Nov 9 - 3:54 PM

Arizona junior WR Shun Brown (foot) is listed as probable on the injury report for Saturday's game against Oregon State.

This foot injury should be considered relatively minor. Brown has yet to miss a game this season. In nine contests this year, the 5-foot-8, 174-pound junior has caught 32 passes for 431 yards and five touchdowns. The Wildcats are working with an incredibly clean injury report this week. Outside of the probable Brown, the only other player whose status is up in the air for this game is DL Kurtis Brown, who is questionable with a concussion.
Nov 9 - 3:28 PM

Arizona sophomore QB Khalil Tate completed 14-of-31 passes for 146 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions while running for 161 yards on 26 carries with two scores in a 49-35 loss to USC on Saturday.

Tate struggled out of the gate in this one, and it put Arizona in a 21-3 hole to start the game. From the start of the second half on, however, the sophomore quarterback was back to doing what he does best. Once he gets his second gear, you aren't going to catch him. USC found that out on a 32-yard touchdown, and a 54-yarder that set up a 16-yard touchdown pass to J.J. Taylor. Tate had accuracy issues throwing today, and threw a costly pop fly interception with the Wildcats down by seven. Still, if you had a chance to watch this one -- especially the second-half -- you can't help but come away impressed. The Oregon State defense stands no chance against him next week.
Nov 5 - 1:43 AM

Arizona senior RB Nick Wilson (ankle) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against USC.

Wilson sat out against Washington State last weekend due to the ankle injury, but he survived the practice week without issue and should be able to play on Saturday barring a late setback. Zach Green and J.J. Taylor will supplement him when needed.
Nov 4 - 10:24 PM

Arizona redshirt junior TE Trevor Wood (concussion) is probable for Saturday's game against USC.

Wood was dealing with an ankle injury early in the year, now a concussion, one which sidelined him for last weekend's win over Washington State. He's now progressed through the concussion protocol, though, and is tracking toward a return to the field on Saturday. Due in large part to his injury concerns, the 6-foot-5, 251-pounder has caught just one pass for six yards this season (it went for a touchdown).
Nov 2 - 6:50 PM

Arizona senior RB Nick Wilson (ankle) is probable for Saturday's game against USC.

Wilson did not play in Saturday's win over Washington State, but all signs this week have been encouraging for his availability versus the Trojans. He was listed as a co-starter on the depth chart along with J.J. Taylor and Zach Green earlier in the week. The 5-foot-10, 195-pounder has rushed for 353 yards (5.1 YPC) and three touchdowns in six games this season. Arizona houses one of the best stables of runners in the Pac-12, headlined by sensational breakout QB Khalil Tate.
Nov 2 - 6:01 PM

Arizona senior RB Nick Wilson (ankle) is listed as a co-starter on the depth chart for Saturday's game against USC.

Wilson warmed up for Saturday's showdown with Washington State, but did not ultimately play in that contest. He's nursing an ankle injury sustained two weekends ago against Cal. The Wildcats are hoping that he'll be able to take the field versus the Trojans. As to his other co-starting mates, J.J. Taylor and Zach Green are listed right up there with the senior back.
