Arizona’s leading WR likely to miss season with torn ACL

And this is exactly what coaches everywhere want to avoid during the spring.

Arizona wide receiver Austin Hill sustained what was initially classified as a leg injury earlier this week. Although there was no diagnosis at first, the injury was believed to be serious.

Unfortunately for the Wildcats, the worst-case scenario has come to fruition. It was confirmed today by coach Rich Rodriguez that Hill suffered a torn ACL — Hill did not participate in UA’s spring game — and is all but certainly out for the 2013 season.

It’s a huge loss for Arizona, as Hill led all receivers on the team last year with 1,364 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was also added to last year’s Biletnikoff Award list and could easily have been on the list this year.

    Davonte Neal should help out if waiver is granted

    I think Davonte will be allowed to play this year. Can’t wait to see what he can do. Kelly wouldn’t let him play at ND.

    Which is exactly why the notion of Spring scrimmages between teams is a bad one.
