Willie Tuitama has been cleared to play Saturday against Washington State. Tuitama suffered a concussion against UCLA and sat out the last two games but according to UA head coach Mike Stoops, doctors have given him the go ahead to get back on the field.Arizona quarterback
"Willie was cleared for contact," said Stoops.
Although Tuitama can play, Stoops refused to name a starting quarterback at his weekly press conference on Monday and that he'll do so later this week.
"We're going to look at all our options before we name a starting quarterback towards the end of the week," Stoops said.
Senior Kris Heavner started in Arizona's previous game, a 17-10 loss to Oregon State. Adam Austin, Tuitama's backup on the depth chart, damaged his MCL against Stanford but could be cleared to play shortly.
"Whether he's cleared for full practice today or not I'm not sure but he'll be partial," Stoops said of Austin. "We'll see how he does through some fundamental periods and we'll take it from there."
