I'm not quite clear on the question but your wife is still the sponsor as she is the USC. If she has no income either you combine your income (using the appropriate form I-864a I think) or find a joint sponsor.

As per my understanding, you don't need to fill I-864A. See page 9 of I-864's instructions (attached)
