Arizona LB Scooby Wright's injury not expected to be season-ending
Scooby Wright, the rock of Arizona's defense, may be able to return this season after injuring his left knee Thursday night.
Preliminary reports indicate the injury to Arizona linebacker Scooby Wright III is not season-ending, CBS Sports has learned.
Wright, 2014 CBS Sports Defensive Player of the Year and a unanimous preseason All-America selection, injured his left knee during Thursday night's season opening win over Texas-San Antonio.
He was scheduled for an MRI at approximately 1 p.m. ET on Friday.
“I hate to speculate,” coach Rich Rodriguez said after the game. “He's going to have an MRI tonight. The training staff is very good. Our medical people are going to check his knee out. I don't think it's bad, MCL, ACL, whatever. So we'll see what happens.”
Wright's father told Tuscon News Now that the injury was "not major."
