Of the seven projected starters at the linebacker, cornerback and defensive back positions, the Arizona Wildcats will be without four of them on Saturday night due to injury and suspension.
Here is Ted Miller's final injury report:
LB Jake Fischer, knee, out
CB Shaquille Richardson, suspended, out
DB Jourdan Grandon, suspended, out
CB Mark Whatley, suspended, out first half
CB Lyle Brown, suspended, out first half
CB Adam Long, knee, out
S Taz Stevenson, knee, out
S Justin Glenn, foot, probable
In addition to the injury to Fischer and suspensions, the team is also without Jonathan McKnight and Adam Hall, two players who have missed most of the season with ACL injuries. In a bit of good news for Arizona, both Juron Criner and Dan Bucker have been completely healthy all week in practice and should be good to go.
Washington will not have to deal with too many injuries, though the team was beaten up pretty badly after a blowout loss last week. It will be interesting to see if UW comes out hungry or hungover against the Wildcats.
