Wright out, Morrison and Miller will replaceby Brad Allis on Nov. 23, 2010, under Arizona Wildcats Football
Arizona will be without wide receiver Bug Wright for the foreseeable future. The junior receiver has been suspended for a violation of team rules.
Official details have not been released, but sources close to the team have told Wildcat Sports Report that the suspension stems from Wright failing to fulfill normal team obligations prior to the USC game and have nothing to do with legal or academic reasons.
Wright did not play in the USC game and missed the Washington State game with an injury. He has battled injuries all season.
Although his suspension has been listed as “indefinite”, sources close to the program have indicated that he is expected to miss the rest of the season.
In his place the Wildcats will turn to Richard Morrison and Terrence Miller. Morrison is a similar smaller, speedy receiver who has played well in games where Wright has been out. He had a key catch late against Oregon State and has seen his role increase in recent weeks.
Miller is playing a hybrid TE/WR role and had a career high seven catches last time out against USC. Miller is a bigger, stronger target, but still ran twice on the fly sweep against the Trojans.
Some of Wright’s punt return duties had already been assumed by David Douglas and Douglas is expected to continue in that role.
