Scott 'doubtful' for CU

Arizona will most likely be without Matt Scott this weekend. The senior quarterback has been listed as doubtful with a concussion on the team’s weekly injury report.

Scott suffered the concussion late in the Wildcats’ 66-10 loss to UCLA last Saturday. The week before against USC he took a hard hit to the head, and actually vomited on the sideline but was deemed not to have suffered a concussion.

Scott is one of three Wildcats listed as doubtful with concussions. Safety Jourdan Grandon and offensive lineman Chris Putton are also on the list.

Three players, Dominique Austin, Terrence Miller and Hank Hobson have been ruled out. Kirifi Taula is listed as probable, while Taimi Tutogi has been listed as doubtful.

If Scott does not go, expect B.J. Denker to start.

“We have all the confidence in B.J.,” said center Kyle Quinn. “There are a few things that he does do differently because he is a lefty. But we run a shotgun so it shouldn’t affect us too much. He can direct our offense and make the plays.”

Rich Rodriguez noted the offense would not change because Denker is in the game.

“He is a sharp guy so we are going to run what we run,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez also noted that Richard Morrison and Javelle Allen would be next in line behind Denker.

“This week he (Morrison) will be taking more reps at quarterback and then Javelle Allen will be the next quarterback,” said Rodriguez. “He is a true freshman who we would like to redshirt. Richard had pretty good command of (the offense) in the spring and he throws the ball pretty well. We will see what he can do this week in practice.”
