So far in 2015, Trey Griffey hasn't been able to see the field for the Arizona Wildcats because of a foot injury, but that appears to be changing this week when the team heads to Boulder.

Here's a look at the full injury report:

Probable: Trey Griffey (foot), Haden Gregory (knee)

Questionable: DaVonte' Neal (hamstring), Jeff Worthy (concussion), Nick Wilson (foot)

Doubtful: None

Out: Scooby Wright III (knee), Derrick Turituri (hip)

The major news out of this is obviously Nick Wilson being listed as questionable with a foot injury. He missed two drives against Oregon State due to an apparent shoulder injury he suffered, and was held out of the end of the game for precautionary reasons Rich Rodriguez said after the game. His durability was a major concern heading into this season, but Jared Baker and Orlando Bradford have proven to be competent backups, and since Zach Green is not on here, I would guess he'll be available as well after being injured early in the Oregon State game.

Neal and Worthy did not play last week after being listed as questionable with these same injuries. That forced Jarvis McCall to play more corner, and he played well, so expect him to see the field a ton again. Worthy's injury allowed Calvin Allen to get some action last week, but otherwise, the defensive line rotation didn't change much.

Turituri and Wright are expected to be out a couple of weeks. That probably means the USC game is their targeted return. And Rich Rodriguez has said that both will start once they return. With the new Triple M package at linebacker, Haden Gregory probably won't be used as much as he previously would have been, given the success of Jake Matthews at MLB, and Paul Magloire moving up in the box from safety to linebacker last week.

Colorado is dealing with its own slew of linebacker injuries, which could spell trouble for them on Saturday night, especially since this is almost as healthy as Arizona has been all year.
