Nick Foles went down with a right knee injury against the Washington State Cougars against Saturday, sidelining him for at least a few weeks. The Washington Huskies will dodge a bullet this weekend, instead having to face backup Matt Scott.
The Arizona Daily Star had an update on Foles’ injury, with Arizona head coach Mike Stoops calling the injury week-to-week.
Arizona Wildcats coach Mike Stoops wouldn’t take direct questions about the status of quarterback Nick Foles’ injured knee on Monday, but said it was not a season-ending injury. He called it a “week-to-week” situation.
Foles has returned to his hometown of Austin, Texas, for a couple of days to be with family and have his knee looked at it, Stoops said.
The good news for the Wildcats is that it shouldn’t end his season. Scott did well taking snaps for Arizona last weekend, completing 14 passes for 139 yards, but also throwing an interception.
Scott will have some help from Nic Grigsby and Keola Antolin in the backfield. The talented duo rushed for 158 yards and three touchdowns. This week they face a tough Husky defense that made stops when it counted against Oregon State.
