No. 23 Stanford beginning tough road stretch with Sun Devils

Posted: Updated:
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- The road ahead for No. 23 Stanford just got a little more difficult.
Cardinal coach David Shaw says wide receiver Devon Cajuste is expected to sit out against No. 17 Arizona State on Saturday night as he recovers from an apparent head injury. Tight end Austin Hooper also is questionable.
Shaw says linebacker James Vaughters and wide receiver Michael Rector will likely play against the Sun Devils after leaving Stanford's 34-17 win over Washington State last Friday with undisclosed injuries, and quarterback Kevin Hogan is fine after sitting out some practices last week with a minor leg injury.

Healthy or not, the Cardinal will need to navigate a tough road stretch if they want to three-peat as Pac-12 champions. Four of Stanford's final six games are away from home.
