'Zona starting QB Foles out a couple of weeks

0 Comments

 Off to their best start since 1993, Arizona will have to make do over the next couple of weeks without their starting quarterback and offensive leader.

Nick Foles suffered a knee injury early in the second quarter of the Wildcats’ 24-7 win over Washington State.  Following the game, head coach Mike Stoops said Foles sprained the knee, but one report said it appeared to be a dislocated kneecap.

“I’m not going to get into the severity of the injury,” Stoops said.

Regardless of what the exact nature of the injury is, Stoops said Foles will miss “probably two or three weeks.”

Based on Stoops’ prognosis, Foles will almost certainly miss next weekend’s game against Washington and the following week’s match-up at UCLA.  A road date with No. 14 Stanford awaits Nov. 6 and is at the back end of the current timeline for Foles’ return.
