Wilson is closer to a return to the field in 2014.
Utah quarterback Travis Wilson’s playing career was in doubt after a pre-existing condition was discovered after concussion tests in November.
However, Wilson recently received good news, as he was cleared to participate in spring practice.
Wilson still has more tests in his future to determine his playing status for 2014, but this is clearly a step in the right direction.
In nine games last year, Wilson threw for 1,827 yards and 16 touchdowns and rushed for 386 yards and five scores on 81 attempts.
More will be known about Wilson’s status for 2014, but there are encouraging signs that he can return to the field. Assuming he is able to play, Utah’s offense will have plenty of intrigue, especially with new coordinator Dave Christensen calling the plays.
