SALT LAKE CITY -
Hh3>Camp Notes: Practice #17
* Head coach Kyle Whittingham says the Ute football team will be stay in "preseason mode" through Saturday's scrimmage. "On Monday, we'll switch to Utah State mode," he said, in reference to Utah's season opener against the Aggies on Sept. 3.
* Senior defensive end Koa Misi, who was carted off the field during last night's practice, is "out until further notice with a back injury," Whittingham reported this afternoon. Utah does not disclose specifics of injuries per HIPPA (injury disclosure) regulations.
* On a good note, the "pit" was much less populated today, as Utes with minor bumps and strains returned to action on the field. Two that remain sidelined are LT Filiaga (shoulder) and Reggie Topps (ankle).
* In general, the players looked livelier today than during yesterday's double session. In particular, quarterback contenders Jordan Wynn and Terrance Cain both improved their efficiency and got plenty of "live" reps.
