Arizona vs. Nevada: Wildcats will be short-handed on offense again

This injury report seems a little more forthcoming than previous ones

Christian Petersen

The Arizona Wildcats are still dealing with several injuries on the offensive side of the ball and the defensive line heading into Saturday's game against the Nevada Wolf Pack.

Last week's injury report that was released wasn't exactly what I would call "accurate", but this one seems a lot closer:

PROBABLE: DaVonte' Neal (ankle)

QUESTIONABLE: Terris Jones-Grigsby (ankle), Jeff Worthy (concussion)

OUT: Jacob Alsadek (foot), Johnny Jackson (back)

Expect Alsadek to miss next week as well, and possibly return against Oregon after the bye. He was in a boot on the sidelines of the UTSA game, and was still in a boot this week in practice. Lene Maiava took his spot at right guard, and coach Rodriguez said that Maiava did a good job, so expect Maiava to be right back there again to make his fourth career start.

Neal missed last week's game after not appearing on the injury report. At Monday's press conference, Rodriguez said that the wide receiver would likely be fine by Saturday.

I don't think Terris Jones-Grigsby will play Saturday given he is listed as questionable for the second-straight week, and freshman Nick Wilson did such a great job taking over the starting duties a week ago. The way Nevada has struggled to stop the run last year and the first game of this year, the Wildcats should see another good performance on the ground no matter who is playing.

Jeff Worthy being hurt is definitely bad news on the defensive line, making Parker Zellers even more important. Also, now that Reggie Gilbert has gotten off the injury report for the first time this year, he should be able to make more of an impact on the game.
