INJURY UPDATE: Safety Robert Johnson will miss at least three weeks after dislocating his shoulder early in the UNLV game.

And that's not all that's ailing the injury plagued Utes.

Linebacker Joe Jiannoni (ankle) and defensive lineman Koa Misi (open-wound finger dislocation) are doubtful for Saturday's homecoming game against Utah State. Tight end Colt Sampson (MCL sprain), offensive lineman Corey Seiuli (ankle) and defensive tackle Gabe Long (MCL sprain) are questionable.

Stevenson Sylvester (broken hand) and cornerback Brice McCain (thigh contusion) are expected to play.
