Kyle Whittingham Discusses Where Utes’ Depth Sits
Head coach Kyle Whittingham seemed hopeful during his post-game press conference that several guys were on the verge of being back in the lineup soon, but as of right now everyone is on “wait and see”.
“We’ve got about eight or 10 guys that are very close,” Whittingham said. “That would be great to get these guys back.”
As of Monday’s press conference, Whittingham didn’t have much to add about where the team currently sits with injuries. Obviously, more will be known later in the week, though as always nothing official will come out from the team until game day when guys are either suited up or in street clothes.
The most significant piece of news on the injury front from Whittingham is that once again backup quarterback Nate Johnson and starting quarterback Cam Rising will be splitting reps with the ones, indicating that Rising is close. How close however remains to be seen.
