Jedd Fisch revealed following Saturday’s win over Northern Arizona that guard Raymond Pulido was unavailable after a bike accident earlier in the week.

The 6-foot-6 true freshman from Apple Valley, California, was expected to start at right guard for the Wildcats. Arizona sang his praises throughout fall camp and Fisch said earlier this week they knew right away he would be a starter for them.

So when Arizona took the field and Pulido wasn’t on the sideline, questions popped up.

“Raymond Pulido had a little bit of a bike accident on Thursday night driving home from practice, so he was not able to play in the game,” Fisch said. “But I believe he’ll be back. He unfortunately, Thursday night on his way home from practice about 6:15, wound up falling off his bike, I guess.

“We took care of that, stitched him up, but kept him at home today for the game. Hopefully, he’ll be back next week, and if he is then he should be able to be full go.”

Pulido played guard and tackle for his high school. He was a two-sport athlete and a 4-star recruit. The Wildcats planned to bump Jonah Savaiinaea from guard — where he was a Freshman All-American last season — out to tackle.

Sam Langi started at right guard in Pulido’s absence.

Arizona travels to Mississippi State next Saturday, Sept. 9.
