Arizona managed to survive training camp without any devastating injuries. In fact, only one player is listed as questionable for Saturday’s opener against Central Michigan — unfortunately that player happens to be junior Rob Gronkowski, the teams’ tight end and best player.

“”As of right now Robbie would be the only part of our team that possibly won’t be available,”” Stoops said. “”That will be kind of a week-to-week decision. We just have to be very protective of him. You always have to be cautious and make sure the player is 100% and that there isn’t a risk of any other injury.””

Stoops said that Gronkowski would have to be pain-free in order to play on Saturday. How close he is to that is unknown.

Gronkowski, Arizona’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdown receptions for a tight end, will be replaced by fellow junior AJ Simmons should he not be able to play on Saturday.
