Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley expects to play Saturday vs. Washington State, after noticeably limping with a possible foot injury at the end of last Friday’s loss at USC.
Asked after Tuesday's practice about his availability this weekend, Huntley said, “You see me right now,” nodding toward his feet.
Huntley absorbed several tough hits against the Trojans, especially on inside running plays, but said he came out of the game feeling generally less sore than he did in the season opener against BYU, in his first action since early November.
Overall, Huntley said, “I'm good … continue to stay in treatment and stuff, keep my body healthy.”
Utah also hopes to have running back Zack Moss return soon, perhaps by Saturday, after he missed most of the last three quarters against USC with an apparent shoulder injury. Devin Brumfield and Devonta’e Henry-Cole became the primary replacements for Moss as the Utes rushed for 247 yards.
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham has not addressed any players’ status this week, citing his policy of not discussing short-term injuries. The Utes have a bye next week before visiting Oregon State on Oct. 12.
Whittingham said Tuesday that former Washington State offensive lineman Noah Reneau-Myers has left Utah’s program, effectively retiring from football. Reneau-Myers appeared in the first two games of the season, mostly on special teams, after joining the Utes as a graduate transfer.
