Utah QB Wilson cleared for spring practice, DL in critical condition
Doctors have cleared Utah quarterback Travis Wilson for non-contact practice this spring.
Utah quarterback Travis Wilson has been cleared to practice with the team in non-contact drills this spring, the school announced Monday evening.
Wilson was sidelined for the last three games of the 2013 season after team doctors discovered a pre-existing head trauma during a concussion diagnosis after the Utes loss to Arizona State on Nov. 9. The junior quarterback is scheduled to undergo re-evaluations in July before getting cleared for full contact practice in the fall.
Unfortunately, the good news for Wilson was not the only announcement from Utah on Monday. The Salt Lake Tribune reported that defensive lineman Moana Ofahengaue suffered a serious head injury in a motorized bike accident. According to the school, the family is optimistic about his long-term recovery.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Moana and his family during this very difficult time," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said in an official statement. "He is a beloved member of our team and we will support him in his recovery in any way we can."
