‘Big blow” as Utes lose CB for the season

A player who may have been a starting member of Utah’s secondary will be unavailable until spring practice next year at the earliest.

During a scrimmage Tuesday, Reginald Porter suffered what was originally thought to be a minor knee injury. Unfortunately, further medical tests revealed that the injury was much more significant than originally diagnosed.

So much so, in fact, that the cornerback will not play at all in 2014 because of the unspecified knee injury.

“[It's] a big blow… very, very disappointing,” head coach Kyle Whittingham said following practice. “He was a guy that we were counting on. He was right in the mix battling for a starting job.”

Porter has been listed as a co-starter along with Davion Orphey of late, but some observers had expected the former┬áto claim the job as his head coach has raved about his play and the way he’d improved.

Porter played in 11 games as a redshirt freshman last season, starting two of those contests.
