“‘Cats escape Cougars, but not injuries in Pullman”

No. 17 Arizona knocked off the Washington State Cougars 24-7 on Saturday, but the win was the only consolation for the Wildcats in Pullman, Wash.

Junior quarterback Nick Foles was injured on the fourth play of the second quarter when he apparently dislocated his right kneecap. Cougar defensive end Travis Long rolled on his leg after a play. Foles had to be helped off the field, and did not return.

Head coach Mike Stoops said Foles would be “”week-to-week”” and that he didn’t think the right knee injury would be season ending. Foles spent the rest of the game on the sidelines, in street clothes and on crutches. Matt Scott, last season’s starting quarterback until the Iowa game, came in and relieved Foles. He had 139 yards passing in the game.

Redshirt freshman Justin Washington also left the game with an injury.

Running backs Keola Antolin and Nic Grigsby accounted for all three of Arizona’s touchdowns. The Wildcats (5-1, 2-1 Pacific 10 Conference) had 142 yards on the ground in the win.

Check back on Monday for a full recap, including updates on all of Arizona’s injuries.
