    [​IMG]The injury hits keep coming in the Pac-12, and it wasn't only Stanford linebacker Shayne Skov who went down.

    On the plus side, there was some good news. And a lot of "maybes."

    Here are some spot updates, on the up- and downsides.

    Arizona: Are the Wildcats about to get some much-needed reinforcements? Perhaps. Safety Adam Hall, a budding star who blew out his knee during spring practices, could return for the Oct. 1 game at USC, though it's more likely he'd be back on Oct. 8 at Oregon State. LB Jake Fischer and RB Greg Nwoko, who also suffered knee injury, could return on Oct. 20 against UCLA.

    Arizona State: While there's been no confirmation on the results of his MRI, things don't look good for Sun Devils DE Junior Onyeali, the 2010 Pac-10 Defensive Freshman of the Year, who hurt his knee early against Illinois. At best, expect Onyeali to be out several weeks. Further, safety Eddie Elder is questionable for the USC game on Saturday with a concussion. With those two out, the Sun Devils will be down five defensive starters from their pre-spring depth chart.

    Colorado: CB Travis Sandersfeld is out indefinitely with a leg/ankle injury. OT David Bakhtiari (knee) practiced Monday and should be ready to go at Ohio State. Center Daniel Munyer (foot) is questionable.

    Oregon: The Ducks could get RB Kenjon Barner, safety John Boyett and receiver Josh Huff back for the visit to Arizona (all three didn't play against Missouri State). It's doubtful, however, that LB Michael Clay will be available.

    Oregon State: A final decision on whether WR James Rodgers will play against UCLA should be made today, and there is reason for optimism. RB Malcolm Agnew (hamstring) is questionable with a doubtful lean. DT Dominic Glover's academic situation continues to be unresolved.

    Stanford: Tight end Coby Fleener suffered a concussion against Arizona, but the Cardinal is off until playing UCLA on Oct. 1.

    USC: An announcement on the status of D-lineman Armond Armstead is expected Tuesday. Armstead has been sitting out due to an undisclosed medical condition.

    Utah: Utes offensive tackle Tony Bergstrom sprained his knee in the first quarter against BYU. Utah is off this week, but he is questionable for the Washington game on Oct. 1. If he can’t go, sophomore Percy Taumoelau will get his first career start.

    Washington: RB Jesse Callier (hamstring) is questionable for the Cal game, which is another hit to the Huskies' depth behind Chris Polk. True freshman Bishop Sankey likely becomes Polk's backup. QB Keith Price has two sprained knees, with the left knee now a more significant issue. Safety Nate Fellner (hamstring), who missed the Nebraska game, remains questionable.

    Washington State: The potential good news is that QB Jeff Tuel (fractured collarbone) could be back in "three to four weeks." The Cougs are off this weekend. Center Andrew Roxas (ankle) and TE Aaron Dunn (quad) are questionable for the Oct. 1 visit to Colorado. DE Adam Coerper is likely out for two or three weeks with a sprained knee.
