SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes running back Zack Moss received word from NFL teams that his surgically repaired knee checked out well.
Moss had surgery to repair his knee back in 2018 when he missed the final five games of the season including the Pac-12 Championship game and the Holiday Bowl, a pair of games that Utah lost.
The former Ute is expected to be drafted at some point during the NFL Draft which will take place April 23-25.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter tweeted out that NFL teams have notified Zack Moss that his knee checked out well when he did a physical at the Scouting Combine. It was originally a concern for teams early in the process but “this was his best case scenario.”
