Both Arizona Wildcats offensive playmakers Juron Criner and Daniel Jenkins are questionable for Saturday's game against the Stanford Cardinal.
The Arizona Wildcats need to get back to full strength soon. They did not look good in their loss in Stillwater to the Oklahoma St. Cowboys, and they will need all hands on deck for Saturday's game against the sixth-ranked Stanford Cardinal. Arizona got stomped last season in their trip to Palo Alto, and they at least need to put a respectable front in Tucson if anyone expects to treat them seriously in their Pac-12 bid.
Wide receiver Juron Criner is a big player the Wildcats missed on Saturday, and quarterback Nick Foles doesn't know if he's getting his man back on time. Criner's appendectomy from last Monday leaves his status in question for Saturday's game, as he's been running with the team but hasn't been practicing. Running back Daniel Jenkins could also be useful, but he's not likely to play either.
If Arizona is going to beat Stanford, it's probably going to have to be with their offense shredding the Cardinal defense somehow. Jenkins and Criner will both be needed to complement the entire offense or risk total ineffectiveness.
