Chatter around Twitter, and reports from the Salt Lake Tribune claim that Zack Moss will miss the remainder of the 2018 season with a knee injury. Moss seemingly confirmed the reports with a tweet:
So many emotions. So many tears. I'm coming back stronger. God's plan— ❌ (@PresMoss2) November 9, 2018
Reports are the injury happened in practice on Wednesday, and that surgery will happening in the coming days. That leaves Utah now without their starting QB and RB going into the final three games of the season, and the bowl game. Fortunately, both Huntley and Moss are juniors and should be back next season (unless Moss tries his hand at jumping to the NFL). If we do see Moss back, which I think we will, it likely won’t be until fall camp, whereas we’ll probably see Huntley back for spring ball.
Behind Moss is Armand Shyne and TJ Green, two talented runners. Shyne has shown the ability to run the ball with extended carries, and Green has a ton of ability. I’m very high on both these guys. While they may not be Moss, which nobody is, I think they should be able to shoulder the workload. Does that mean Utah wins the next two conference games? I’m not so sure, but I think the foundation is still there to be productive on the ground, even if it’s not as explosive.
