TUCSON, Ariz. – Starting cornerback Darrien Molton is back in the fold for Washington State after missing two games with an undisclosed right arm injury.

Molton made the trip to Tucson and warmed up with the Cougars prior to Saturday’s game at Arizona. The junior from San Diego left WSU’s game at Oregon in the first half and returned with a black cast attached to his right arm.

Starting Mike linebacker Isaac Dotson didn’t make the trip with WSU and will miss his third straight game with an undisclosed lower body injury. The senior, who’d made the move from Will to Mike linebacker after Peyton Pelluer’s season-ending injury against Boise State, limped off the field in the first quarter of games against USC and Oregon. He didn’t play in WSU’s game at Cal or last week in the Homecoming game against Colorado.

Backup defensive end Derek Moore also didn’t travel with the Cougars because of an apparent injury. During last week’s game against Colorado, Moore was flattened by a Buffaloes offensive lineman and taken to the sideline injury tent. He didn’t return to the game.
