Quarterback Matt Scott and tailback Nicolas Grigsby should both be healthy enough to play when the Arizona Wildcats take on Oregon Nov. 26, coach Mike Stoops said today.
Scott, who Stoops said is "probable for Oregon", hasn't played since spraining his right wrist in the fourth quarter of Arizona's Oct. 30 win over UCLA. Grigsby sprained his right ankle in that game, too, but came back to play one snap against Stanford the following week. Grigsby missed Saturday's 24-21 loss to USC, but should be healthy enough to face the Ducks.
"He'll be back for sure," Stoops said.
Though both are healthy, its unclear how much either will play. Nick Foles has taken control of the quarterback position since returning to the lineup Nov. 6, while Grigsby has been leapfrogged by Keola Antolin at running back. Both Scott and Grigsby could offer Arizona some options when they face the nation's No. 1.
