Arizona coach Jedd Fisch confirmed more bad news about the campaign on Monday.

According to Adam Rittenberg of ESPN, Fisch told reporters that starting quarterback Jordan McCloud will miss the rest of the season and have surgery to repair knee and ankle injuries. McCloud was Arizona's QB1 for the past two games, and he ends his year with 481 passing yards, two touchdown throws, and five interceptions with 75 rushing yards on 18 attempts.

"This is not a nine-month or 12-month injury by any means," Fisch explained about the sophomore, who transferred from South Florida. "This is more of just unfortunately where we are in the season."

Lions pass-rusher Romeo Okwara believed to have torn Achilles

  Lions pass-rusher Romeo Okwara believed to have torn Achilles A torn Achilles would instantly end the 26-year-old’s season and leave Detroit without one of its best defenders. Okwara re-upped with the Lions on three-year, $39M deal in March with $25M guaranteed. He registered a career-high 10 sacks last year, setting himself up for another impactful season.Similar to Shaquil Barrett — who scored a $72M deal from the Bucs — Okwara was hardly known just a few years ago. He missed the Giants’ 53-man cut in ’18, but he developed into something of a sack machine. The Lions didn’t get to see much of that in 2021, unfortunately.

Redshirt freshman Gunner Cruz, who started earlier in the season, returns to the top of the depth chart heading into this coming Saturday's matchup against the 1-4 Colorado Buffaloes. Cruz has completed 48 of 71 passes for 454 yards with a pair of touchdowns and also two interceptions.

"Gunner won the job in training camp because of the way he was able to throw the football in training camp," Fisch added about his new starter. "We have to now reverse course ... and remind him why he won the job."
