Stoops: Foles' season isn't over

10/18/2010

Arizona coach Mike Stoops continues to believe that quarterback Nick Foles' knee injury won't end the junior's season.

Stoops wouldn't describe the nature of Foles' injury. The Arizona Daily Star has reported that it appears to be a dislocated right kneecap.

Former USC quarterback Mark Sanchez suffered a dislocated knee cap during fall camp in 2008 and he was still able to start the opener three weeks later.

Matt Scott took over for Foles and completed 13-of-18 for 138 yards with an interception in the Wildcats' 24-7 win at Washington State. Scott, who started the first three games in 2009 before Foles took over, will start Saturday against Washington.

Stoops said Foles would be evaluated on a "week-to-week" basis. Foles' knee was treated on Sunday, and the Tucson Citizen reported that he has returned to his home in Austin, Texas, "for a couple of days to be with family and have his knee looked at."
