Will Sutton injury: Sun Devils get 'great news' on knee injury

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE

The defensive star is week-to-week.

The Arizona State football team got some positive news after their 43-21 loss to the Oregon Ducks. Star defensive lineman Will Sutton, who left the game after the second play from scrimmage when he forced a fumble with a knee injury, did not suffer a serious injury. According to the team he received a "good prognosis" and will be "week to week."

Reporter Doug Haller was able to speak to head coach Todd Graham about the injury, as noted in his post on AZCentral.com.

Graham said the news was "great news."

"I was worried," Graham said. "When I walked in my office to watch the film last night I was really concerned because of the amount of pain he was in. But when I watched the film, I was encouraged by what I saw. ... His foot wasn't in the ground. It was kind of a leg whip. It did not appear to be something that would be an ACL deal. Of course, I'm not a doctor, but our trainers looked at it, and they were optimistic, but very concerned. And then we got good news today, so we're very excited about that."

Sutton has 8.5 sacks on the season, along with 40 tackles, 14 for losses.

The Sun Devils next play Saturday October 27, hosting UCLA at noon. They are currently 5-2 on the season, 3-1 in the Pac-12.
