Utah quarterback Travis Wilson received some good news from the team doctors this week. Wilson has been given medical clearance to participate in football activity. A medical update on his status was expected before July. The school announced the news Tuesday afternoon on the team’s official website.
“Obviously, it’s great news that Travis has been medically cleared to play football again,” Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. “Travis’ health was our number one concern and we’re relieved for him and his family that he is OK.”
“I’m happy I’ve been cleared to play again,” said Wilson. “My condition is stable and the neurosurgeon predicted it will remain stable in the future. I had a feeling nothing would change from the previous scan, so I’ve been working to get back into shape. I feel totally comfortable about returning to football and full contact.”
Wilson missed the final three games of the 2013 season due to the effects of a concussion suffered against Arizona State. Having him back, and most importantly healthy, will be a nice lift for the Utes on offense heading into summer camps. Wilson had an up-and-down season last fall, completing 56.1 percent of his passes for 1,827 yards and 16 touchdowns, but he was intercepted 16 times as well as a sophomore.
