Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott is doubtful to play in Saturday's homecoming game against Colorado, and another two projected starters will face a similarly long roads because of concussions suffered in last week's game against UCLA.
Scott, guard Chris Putton and safety Jourdon Grandon were all listed as doubtful in the UA's eight-player injury report, released today. Scott suffered the injury in the third quarter of last week's 66-10 loss at UCLA; Putton and Grandon were injured later in the game, and did not return.
Linebacker Hank Hobson is listed as out because of a neck injury suffered last week. Hobson spent Saturday night in a Los Angeles hospital because of a nerve issue in his neck. Fullback/defensive end Taimi Tutogi has been upgraded to questionable because of a neck injury; he did not play last weekend.
Scott's likely absence means B.J. Denker will likely play Saturday morning against the Buffaloes. The game kicks off at 11:30 a.m., and will be televised nationally on FX.

• Out: LB Hank Hobson (neck), DE Dominique Austin (foot, season-ending), WR Terrence Miller (ankle).
