Jaime Salazar may get another week to prove himself, after all. 

Salazar, the Arizona Wildcats' junior placekicker, was listed first on the depth chart when it was released this morning. Salazar started Saturday's 41-10 win over Northern Arizona, but was lifted after missing a 47-yard field goal and a PAT. Senior Alex Zendejas finished the game, and hit a PAT following the Wildcats' final touchdown. 

Coach Mike Stoops said today that he'll "stick with the same order" Thursday against Oklahoma State, with Salazar getting the first chance.  

Shane Zink will start at right guard Thursday unless Trace Biskin returns from a leg injury. Zink, a converted tackle, started Saturday. Stoops also said cornerback Shaquille Richardson, who struggled in the first half against the Lumberjacks, will start against OSU and star receiver Justin Blackmon.
