As the regular season is nearing its end, the Arizona Wildcats are seemingly getting healthier, instead of wearing down.
The team’s injury report for Saturday’s game vs. the Oregon Ducks was released Thursday and only two names are on the list.
Out: DE/LB JB Brown (ankle), DL Kurtis Brown (ilness)
Arizona had two key players limited/out last week in wide receiver Shun Brown and free safety Scottie Young Jr. but it appears both will be good to go Saturday.
Young, dealing with a knee injury, was not on last week’s injury report, but he hardly practiced leading up to the Oregon State game, which is why he didn’t play.
Brown was listed as probable with a foot injury last week, but was held out for most of the game, limited to just one punt return for six yards.
Assuming he is healthier this week, Brown will be a welcomed addition to UA’s receiving corps, as he leads Arizona in receptions (32) and touchdown catches (5) and is tied for Tony Ellison for the lead in receiving yards (431).
A true freshman, Young has been a productive member of UA’s secondary when healthy, tallying 37 tackles in seven games, including three tackles for loss.
In injury news for Oregon, the Ducks are expected to get starting quarterback Justin Herbert back from a broken collarbone, a massive addition to an offense that has been anemic without him.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 5 p.m. MST and it will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
