This is wonderful news. All the best to Williams for a complete and speedy recovery.

Thanks DN for keeping up on the story.

Salt Lake City, UT

Good to hear Jamaal will be okay. It is always hard to see things like that. The U handled the injury well, so compliment to them on that. Hope jamaal has a speedy recovery.

Kaysville, UT

No one wants to see one of these kids hurt. This is good news for all football fans from both Utah and I'm sure byu.
I wish him a full recovery and success on the field.

Go Utes

Raleigh, NC

This is the only thing that really matters about the game. Glad to know he is okay.

Cottonwood Heights, UT

Glad to hear it. He's a gamer and hopefully he can get back on the field soon.

Best wishes on a speedy return Jamaal.

Rock Hill, SC

This die hard Ute fan is very happy to learn Jamal will be OK. He is a good kid and if he stays healthy will have a bright football future ahead of him. Even without football this kid is going to succeed in life. Get back on the field soon - you are one Cougar I really root for!

Go Utes!

I too hope Williams recovers fully. Losing your most productive offensive player is never good. Its even worse when his health or even life is on the line.

My experience regarding Ute fans was a lot different than yours as I watched the game via the internet. The majority were concerned with his health and wished him to give a thumbs up or another sign he was alright. However two fans on the blog were quite giddy at what happened. One hoped for paralysis. They had other ugly hateful things to say as well about the University, the cheerleaders and the culture so the comments after the injury were to be expected. These two fans represented why I wish BYU would never play Utah again. The game was great. The fans were not.


"BYU received some good news Sunday morning"

This is great news to everyone. As a Ute, watching this nightmare two weeks in a row took the fun out of the win.

Storm Woods returned to Oregon and is expected a full recovery too.

Great news!

Idaho Falls, ID

I am very relieved. When they carted him off the field, I didn't see any movement of his limbs, not even a thumbs up. I am very happy for him and his family.
If he truly had a concussion, he won't be playing this weekend, but possibly back for Utah State.

Personnel-wise, the loss of Williams is a much bigger deal than the loss of Hadley, although Alisa, Lasike, and Hine did a pretty good job filling in.

Not where I was sitting.

San Diego, CA

This was the only article about "the game" that I was eager to read. So very grateful that this outstanding young man appears to be on the mend from what could have been a devastating injury. Best wishes for a full recover, Jamaal.

"However two fans on the blog were quite giddy at what happened."
Steven Jarvis, keep in mind that with the anonymity of the internet, those two fans were probably 12 years old, literally. You are upset with kids. If the internet was your only option to watch the game, find some way to cover up the game blog. Nothing good will ever be found there.

Holladay, UT

This Utah fan is wishing Williams a speedy recovery. Hopefully, he will be held out until all his post-concussion symptoms have cleared. He has an awesome career ahead of him. Multiple concussions back to back could derail that. He will most likely be back and as dangerous as always in a few weeks. Good luck! By the way, why don't they ever run him to the outside, instead of straight up the middle. Big back= middle. Speedy back=outside.

Beverly Hills, CA

This Utah fan wishes Williams a speedy recovery.

Good news -- and I mean primarily for Jamaal. Yes, I'm a Y fan, but my concern is primarily for the young man. An injury is a serious matter, no matter which side you are on. Best wishes for his continued recovery.

South Jordan, UT

This is the perfect opportunity to replace Jammal for the time being with Hill and let Ammon throw the ball as QB. All Hill has to do is run the ball, something he excels at. Ammon can throw the ball, something that Hill is clueless about.

Salt Lake City, UT

Great news!!

Thanks for the update and best wishes to Jamaal!


Relieved to hear that Williams was released today. Here is to a speedy recovery.
