The medical status of Arizona forward Zach Peters has not changed, according to UA spokesman Cory Walton, so he's not likely to play in Saturday's Red-Blue Game.

Peters has been doing everything in practice except full-contact drills with the Wildcats so far this fall. He said at last month's media day he was close to returning and was taking eye tests as a last step toward being cleared medically.

The NCAA ruled last month that the Kansas transfer can play this season instead of sitting out the redshirt year usually required of transfers, after transferring from Kansas, so the medical hurdle is his last.

UA says all other players are expected to play Saturday.

In his Pac-12 prediction, CBS' Gary Parrish says UA is probably still a player away from competing for a national title.
