Arizona football: Hill works to improve all skills for '13 season

Receiver Austin Hill has worked on his quickness, busting off the line, his overall speed and his routes to be better than he was in 2012.


Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott is doubtful to play in Saturday's homecoming game against Colorado, and another two projected starters will face a similarly long roads because of concussions suffered in last week's game against UCLA.

Scott, guard Chris Putton and safety Jourdon Grandon were all listed as doubtful in the UA's eight-player injury report, released today. Scott suffered the injury in the third quarter of last week's 66-10 loss at UCLA; Putton and Grandon were injured later in the game, and did not return.

Linebacker Hank Hobson is listed as out because of a neck injury suffered last week. Hobson spent Saturday night in a Los Angeles hospital because of a nerve issue in his neck. Fullback/defensive end Taimi Tutogi has been upgraded to questionable because of a neck injury; he did not play last weekend. 

Scott's likely absence means B.J. Denker will likely play Saturday morning against the Buffaloes. The game kicks off at 11:30 a.m., and will be televised nationally on FX.

Arizona's full injury report for Saturday:

Out: LB Hank Hobson (neck), DE Dominique Austin (foot, season-ending), WR Terrence Miller (ankle).

Doubtful: QB Matt Scott (concussion), S Jourdon Grandon (concussion), OG Chris Putton (concussion)

Questionable: FB/DE Taimi Tutogi (neck)

Probable: DE Kirifi Taula (shoulder)
