Significant news out of Salt Lake City today, as Utah announced that Jordan Wynn, the oft-injured quarterback, is giving up football after suffering a left-shoulder injury in the upset loss at Utah State Friday night. He has had procedures on his shoulders three times, and this could be a fourth.
It’s a blow to Utah’s chance of surprising USC in the Pac-12 South. Now the Utes bank on Jon Hays, who was seen mostly as a caretaker last year in relief of Wynn, and true freshman (he did have spring with the Utes) Travis Wilson, who has already been getting some snaps in wildcat formations. Don’t be surprised if Wilson gets the call at some point, maybe very soon.
