Pac-12 weekend roundup

I was out of pocket Thursday and Friday on family business, so I missed a couple of things.

Unfortunately, most of the news was injury related.

  • Arizona free safety Adam Hall, a budding star, tore the ACL in his right knee and could be out for as long as seven months.

  • Two projected Arizona State starters -- All-Pac-10 cornerback Omar Bolden and receiver T.J. Simpson -- suffered knee injuries. The severity of both injuries has not yet been reported, though there are serious concerns for Simpson.

  • UCLA's projected starting offensive tackle, Jeff Baca, broke his ankle and it's unclear whether he will be ready for fall practice. The Bruins -- and coach Rick Neuheisel -- have struggled with injury woes the past three seasons. Seems like they're due a break. (Maybe that's not the right word choice here.)

  • Oregon State RB Jordan Jenkins is out for the rest of spring because of a shoulder injury.

  • USC DE Armond Armstead takes a step toward getting back on the field (though probably not this spring).
