Arizona State DT Will Sutton received "a good prognosis" Friday on his right knee injury and is now considered "week-to-week," according to ASU Media Relations Director Doug Tammaro.
Sutton left Thursday's 43-21 loss to Oregon after forcing a fumble on the second snap of the game and watched the rest of the action from the sideline on crutches. Sutton's absence became apparent quickly, too, as the Ducks were able to run for 329 yards in the first half alone after ASU entered the contest with an average 187.8 allowed per game.
While there still is no exact timetable for Sutton's return, this is undoubtedly good news for the team, as the junior defensive lineman was likely on his way to All-American honors.
Jake Sheffield, a former Marine who transferred to ASU this past offseason from junior college, was Sutton's main replacement Thursday's evening and should continue to see most of the snaps as he recovers.
Sutton has already compiled 8.5 sacks, 14 tackles of loss, three pass breakups and two forced fumbles over the seven games he's played in this season.
