Arizona is expected to release a statement Wednesday morning about the condition of starting linebacker Jake Fischer, who suffered an injury to his right knee in Saturday’s spring game.

Fischer suffered the injury near the end of the scrimmage, and it was feared that he he would be the third Wildcat player to suffer an ACL injury this spring.

Backup running back Greg Nwoko and starting safety Adam Hall already have undergone surgery and begun rehab.

Fischer, from Ironwood Ridge High School, has a redshirt year available. He played as a backup and on special teams as a true freshman in 2009 before becoming a starter in 2010. He was fourth on the team last season with 58 tackles, including 7.5 for loss and two sacks.
