Wilson was knocked out of Utah’s game against Arizona with an injury to the index finger of his throwing hand two Saturdays ago. He played with a protective glove over the hand the following week in the Utes’ 19-3 loss to USC. Wilson struggled against the nationally-ranked Trojan defense, throwing for just 51 yards on 5 of 14 passing while getting intercepted twice.
Still, Wilson is making no excuses.
“I don’t think it really affected me at all. I was just trying to make throws, trying to make plays, and it just wasn’t going for me on Saturday,” he said. “I’ve just got to make sure I get that corrected this week in practice.”
The bandages that Wilson wore on his hand the previous week were not present when he appeared before Utah media on Monday. That’s good news for the Utes, who are two wins away from bowl eligibility. If Wilson can get back to the form he showed in leading his team to an upset of Stanford a few weeks ago, they should get there.
