Arizona redshirt junior TE Trevor Wood (ankle) is expected to play against Utah on Friday.

Wood (6'5/251) injured his ankle against Northern Arizona in the season-opener and has not played in the two proceeding contests (Bryce Wolma filled in as starter in those games). The redshirt junior was listed as questionable earlier in the week but has made nice progress on the health front in the lead-up to Friday's contest.
Sep 22 - 9:42 PM

Arizona redshirt freshman TE Jamie Nunley (shoulder) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Utah.

Nunley sat out the team's season-opener due to a back injury which started bothering him near the end of August camp. While the 6-foot-5, 228-pounder has managed to play in the two contests since, but will once again be sidelined on Friday, this time due to a new shoulder injury.
Sep 21 - 3:47 PM

Arizona senior WR Cam Denson (foot) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Utah.

Denson (5'11/168) continues to be bothered by a right foot injury suffered in spring practice. He did manage to suit up against Houston in Week 2, catching one pass for five yards in the loss, but did not play against UTEP in Week 3. The Arizona Daily Star's Michael Lev forwards that the wideout could be a candidate for a medical redshirt unless he's able to make a full recovery in the coming weeks.

Arizona redshirt junior TE Trevor Wood (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against Utah.

Wood is working his way back from an ankle injury sustained in the season-opener against Northern Arizona. He has missed each of the Wildcats' subsequent games. If the 6-foot-5, 251-pounder is unable to play on Friday, starting duties will again be passed to Bryce Wolma.
Sep 21 - 2:35 PM

Arizona redshirt senior edge rusher DeAndre' Miller (foot) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Utah.

Miller has yet to play this season, as he has been on the mend from a July surgery for a stress fracture in his foot. While the 6-foot-3, 236-pounder will not play on Friday, he could be close to a return to action. When addressing the media on Monday, Arizona HC Rich Rodriguez said, "He’s worked really hard, he’s in great shape, he just hasn’t practiced." The Wildcats have managed just four sacks in three games. Miller's return would greatly aid the push up front -- he recorded a combined 13 sacks in 2015 and 2016.
Sep 21 - 2:09 PM

Arizona sophomore QB Khalil Tate (shoulder) was available against UTEP, and will be able to play on Friday against Utah if necessary.

Tate was listed as a co-starter with Brandon Dawkins at the beginning of the year, but it's clear that Dawkins is the starter and Tate is simply a option for sub packages. That's unlikely to change when the Wildcats begin conference play on Friday.
Sep 18 - 8:06 PM

Arizona junior WR Shun Brown caught three passes for 42 yards and a touchdown and also notched a 63-yard punt-return touchdown in Friday's 63-16 win over UTEP.

Brown hauled in a 36-yard touchdown in the second quarter, catching the ball between two defenders on a strike from Brandon Dawkins and then stumbling in for the score. He would sprint home for a 63-yard touchdown on a punt return a few minutes later to polish off his scoring for the contest. He has already racked up 135 yards and two touchdowns on just five punt returns this season. As a receiver, he's working to a 8-126-1 receiving line through three games.
Sep 16 - 2:13 PM

Arizona redshirt junior QB Brandon Dawkins completed 18-of-21 passes for 155 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 133 yards and three scores in Friday's 63-16 drubbing of UTEP.

Best game of Dawkins' collegiate career. He was almost perfect through the air and absolutely blew up UTEP on the ground, racking up his 133 yards rushing on 14 attempts (good for a YPC clip of 9.3). The game was actually scoreless after one quarter before Dawkins went off for four touchdowns in the second quarter. Through three games the 6-foot-3, 210-pounder has now thrown for 422 yards with a 4/0 TD/INT ratio and has rushed for 251 yards and five scores. He'll try to keep this nice start going when the Wildcats take on Utah next Friday.
Sep 16 - 2:06 PM

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

Wilson was considered questionable late in the practice week, but it looks like he will try to give it a go against the Miners. The ever-injured senior will split carries with J.J. Taylor if he is, indeed, healthy enough to take the field.
Sep 15 - 9:57 PM

Arizona redshirt junior TE Trevor Wood (ankle) will not play in Friday's game against UTEP.

Wood initially injured his ankle against Northern Arizona in the season-opener. The 6-foot-5, 251-pounder subsequently sat out this past Saturday's loss to Houston. With Wood already ruled out for Week 3, Bryce Wolma will start in his place against the Miners.
Sep 14 - 2:04 PM

Arizona senior RB Nick Wilson (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against UTEP.

Wilson missed Arizona's Week 2 loss to Houston with an ankle injury. While the Wildcats were optimistic early in the week that he would be able to play against UTEP, he has not made enough progress to get himself off the injury report. J.J. Taylor will start in his place if the oft-injured senior is sidelined for a second consecutive contest.
Sep 14 - 12:53 PM

Arizona RB coach Calvin McGee indicated that he is hopeful that senior RB Nick Wilson (ankle) is able to play against UTEP on Saturday.

Wilson sat out this past weekend's loss to Houston due to ankle injury which he was fighting through during the practice week. Said McGee, "He’s doing OK. I’m hoping he is (able to play on Saturday). Last week it was a game-time-type thing." When it comes to the oft-injured 5-foot-10, 195-pounder, we will believe that he's ready to roll when we see him on the field. J.J. Taylor will start on Saturday if Wilson is unable to go.
Sep 12 - 6:54 PM

Arizona senior RB Nick Wilson (ankle) did not receive a carry in Saturday's loss to Houston.

Wilson was questionable entering Saturday's contest due to an ankle issue. While he did not appear to have either of his ankles taped prior to the game, the Wildcats held the ever-injury-prone senior out of action nonetheless. J.J. Taylor led the way on the ground in his place with 87 yards. We'll pass along further updates as to Wilson's health as they become available. The 5-foot-10, 195-pounder has shown upside when able, but his body just has not cooperated for much of his collegiate career.
Sep 10 - 12:39 PM

Arizona redshirt freshman RB J.J. Taylor ran for 87 yards on 17 carries in a 19-16 loss to Houston on Saturday.

On a day where both Brandon Dawkins and Khalil Tate struggled to make an impact with their arms or legs, Taylor was asked to do much of the heavy lifting, and he almost pulled it off. He showed impressive quickness along with his burst; particularly on a 27-yard run that set up an Arizona score. Being a 5-foot-6, 160-pound running back makes it difficult to be the bellcow all year, but Taylor might have the talent to do it.
Sep 10 - 2:19 AM

Arizona S Isaiah Hayes (shoulder) was ruled out for Saturday's game against Houston.

Hayes also missed the opener. He made seven starts last year after earning the starting free safety role a few games into his true freshman season.
