SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah wide receiver Britain Covey announced on Twitter that he had surgery to repair a torn ACL and meniscus.

Covey suffered the injury during Utah’s loss in the Pac-12 Championship against Washington.

The sophomore did a little bit of everything for Utah in 2018. He led the team with 60 catches for 637 yards and one touchdown through the air.

Covey threw three passes and completed all three of them for 71 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran the ball 21 times for 173 yards. Finally, he had seven kick returns for 144 yards and 25 punt returns for 221 yards.

A typical rehabilitation period for and ACL and meniscus injury is six to nine months. If Covey takes the full nine months, he would return in September. But everyone is different.

Covey will obviously miss Utah’s next game which is the Holiday Bowl on December 31 against Northwestern at 5 p.m. on FS1.
