Any hope that quarterback Jordan Wynn could return this year ended Monday when the Utah Utes announced Wynn, who injured his left shoulder in the Utes' 31-14 loss to Washington, must have surgery to repair the damage.
It will be the second surgery in less than a year for the junior, who had surgery in December on his right shoulder.
Wynn finishes the year 66-for-116 for 727 yards and six touchdowns with two interceptions. Wynn often struggled throwing long due to lingering effects of his December surgery and now faces another long recovery following the repair to his non-throwing arm.
"Obviously this is disappointing news for Jordan and the entire team," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. "Jordan worked incredibly hard to come back from his shoulder surgery last winter and we are confident he will take the same approach with his rehab this time around. The good news is that he is eligible for a redshirt season."
