The health of Arizona running back Keola Antolin just became more of a premium as backfield mate Greg Nwoko appears to have suffered a torn ACL in his left knee. "We'll see how that progresses, but it looks like it will be a long-term deal with him," coach Mike Stoops said. "This looks like a seven-month total injury for him. I would imagine we would get him back at some point during the season, but I would imagine it would be the latter end."
Nwoko is one of the team's bigger backs who provides quality depth. With Nwoko out, Antolin is the only back on the roster who logged more than eight carries last year. One back who could get more work could be highly touted recruit Ka'Deem Carey.
