TEMPE, Ariz. - "I anticipate him to play," said head coach Todd Graham when asked about Manny Wilkins' availability for this weekend.

Wilkins opened the year as Arizona State's starting quarterback, but was injured against USC a few weeks ago.

Brady White started last Saturday's contest against UCLA, but left in the fourth quarter with what we later learned to be a season-ending injury.

That left the Arizona State offense in the hands of freshman Dillon Sterling-Cole.

So will Wilkins return and play this Saturday in Boulder?

"I don't know how much," said Graham. "But I anticipate him to play."

Graham also acknowledged that could change.

"If we had to play today it would probably be a combination. So we'll see, hopefully a couple of more days he'll (Manny) be ready to go completely," said Graham.

Graham said Wilkins threw and ran the two-minute drill during Thursday's practice.
