Utah sophomore quarterback Travis Wilson will miss the final two games of this season, and his football career may be over, because of a pre-existing condition discovered during a post-concussion exam, the Salt Lake Tribune reported Monday. Wilson, who became a starter midway through his freshman season last year, suffered the concussion against Arizona State on Nov. 9, but he didn't exhibit any symptoms until the following day. Exams revealed a head-related condition that is not life-threating at the moment, but coach Kyle Whittingham said it could put Wilson at higher risk if he continues to play, according to the Tribune report. Wilson has two years of college eligibility remaining, but it will be several months before it is determined whether Wilson can play again, according to Whittingham. Wilson started the first nine games this season before missing Saturday's game against Oregon because of the concussion. He completed 56 percent of his passes this season with 16 touchdown passes and 16 interceptions for the 4-6 Utes. Sophomore Adam Schulz, who originally came to Utah as a walk-on, will start Utah's remaining games at Washington State on Saturday and against Colorado on Nov. 30. He presumably would start if the Utes earn a berth in a bowl game.
