Utah QB Wynn remains sidelined with sore shoulder

Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn's absence from the practice field will continue until Monday, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said Friday.

Wynn, who missed Thursday's practice due to soreness in his surgically repaired shoulder, also sat out Friday's morning session.

Whittingham said he will treat Wynn like several other injured players who are on the verge of returning by keeping them on the sidelines until Monday's practice.

"That gives them a good chunk of time to heal," he said. "To me that is the most logical thing to do."

Such a plan would mean Wynn will miss Saturday's scrimmage, the last of the Utes' camp.

Wynn, whose career has been hampered by injuries, downplayed the aches he feels in his shoulder.

"It's nothing to worry about or freak out about," he said. "There is no structural damage, it's just a little sore."

Wynn has thrown well in camp, but his backups, especially Travis Wilson, have thrown well too and have close the gap between themselves and the returning starter.

However, Whittingham said Friday that Wynn remains the starting quarterback.

Wynn didn't seem too concerned his absence would put his job in danger and said being on the field for the season opener was more important than being there now.

"I know my body and when it feels right and when it's not," he said.
