It appears as though Florida’s not the only school that could be facing some health-related quarterback issues as they attempt to rebound from a double-digit loss.
Much like John Brantley, Utah’s Jordan Wynn was injured late in the first half, although he was dinged a little further north than the Gators QB. It remains unclear when exactly Wynn suffered an injury to his left shoulder during the Utes’ 31-14 loss to Washington, but, whenever it took place, its severity made head coach Kyle Whittingham decidedly pessimistic when it came to his vague prognosis.
“There’s a chance maybe that Jordan will be able to play, I don’t know. I don’t want to jump the gun. But right now it doesn’t look good,” Whittingham said.
Whittingham did intimate that Wynn “could be on the shelf for a while.” What “a while” means specifically will likely be known at some point later today or Monday.
Wynn was replaced by Div. II transfer Jon Hayes, who threw for 156 yards but was also responsible for two turnovers — one interception, on fumble — in his two quarters of work.
“He got put in a tough spot, in a situation where he was playing against a pretty good defense,” Whittingham. “Other than the turnovers I thought he made some pretty good throws.”
