It’s looking more and more likely that DeAndre’ Miller will make his 2017 debut for the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday.
The senior “Stud,” who missed the first four weeks because of a foot injury, is listed as probable for Arizona’s game at Colorado (5 p.m., Pac-12 Networks).
Miller, who had surgery in July, has been practicing the past two weeks. He isn’t expected to start but should rotate with freshman Kylan Wilborn. It’s also possible the two could be on the field at the same time.
Tight end Jamie Nunley (shoulder) also is listed as probable for the Colorado game. Nunley has been in and out of the lineup because of back and shoulder injuries. If he plays, the Wildcats would have the best depth at tight end that they’ve had all year. Trevor Wood (knee/ankle) is no longer listed on the injury report.
Also absent from the report is senior defensive tackle Parker Zellers, who missed the past two games because of a sprained ankle. If he doesn’t start, Zellers will play a significant role in the rotation.
As previously reported, receiver Cam Denson (foot) and safety Isaiah Hayes (shoulder) are out for the season. Denson is expected to take a medical retirement from football.
