From this cougar fan to you, get better soon, and make sure you are 100% healthy before coming back. Good luck to you!

Cheyenne, WY

This is sad to hear.
Hopefully there are no long term effects.
But being diagnosed as a season ender, I hope he makes the choices best for him.
Have a good day.

So sad for him. Football doesn't matter for him anymore. Couldn't be more proud of how he's handled himself with the hardest schedule in the entire country.

If he can get back on the field, GREAT. I would love to see HIM be the one to take us to the Pac 12 title game. If he can't, we certainly understand and support his health more than anything.

Terrible news.

Hopefully it is not career ending. Travis really looked like a young guy that had a bright future. He has the skills to become a great QB in the PAC 12 and possibly the NFL.

Tooele, UT

All the best to you Travis. We hope you get the medical care and attention you need and that you are able to return to full strength next season.

Best wishes always,

Ouch. I hope he recovers fully. I wonder if this head trauma issue is going to bring an end to college football.

What a disappointment to Ute Nation! I am not a Ute fan, but this kid had so much potential and showed so much early in his college career. If I am right, he had two more years to play college football and get even better than he already is. With his size and football intelligence, I could see him in the NFL. Above all, I hope he recovers well from whatever this is. Good luck young man!

BIG group hug from everybody to Travis! It has been a total thrill to watch you play every down this year! Win or lose, I have LOVED every bit of it.

Hoping for the best in the days to come!

I am very thankful for the current awareness in sports regarding Brain Injuries. 20 years ago Travis would probably have been told to man up, and could have suffered permanent damage.

I hope that all things work out for this classy Ute!


These things can be scary. Whatever it is, it's good they found it now rather than later.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Travis and his family.

And thanks in advance for thoughtful comments from the more classy BYU fans.

Tooele, UT

Travis Wilson, like Jordan Wynn before him, is a class guy, and even if his football career ends prematurely like Wynn's did, I hope he can leave the game without any bitterness and find something in life he can enjoy and be good at.

Even though I'm a BYU Fan, I want to send my very best wishes to Travis, his family and the entire Utah Ute team.

Ogden, UT

Sad to hear about Travis. Hope he makes a complete and full recovery.

Go Utes.

Salt Lake City, UT

Travis, we're all cheering for you now.

Salt Lake City, UT

This is a difficult blow for Travis personally I am sure. You never like to be eliminated by a health concern beyond your control. Best of luck to him.

I hope he's all right. Man it's been a ruff year for the Utes. Utah seems to be jinxed at QB; just can't catch a break.

Apparently the doctors found something that may have been there since birth and could have put his life at risk if it hadn't been discovered. While it is disappointing facing the possibility of not being able to play anymore, it is good they diagnosed this before he had far more serious problems. Everyone should be grateful for that. Take care of yourself Travis, our thoughts are with you.

West Jordan, UT

This has been such a disappointing season after so much promise at 4 - 2. However, something like this really puts into perspective the things that are most important in life.

This concussion sounds like it was a blessing in disguise if it led to the diagnosis of a more serious problem. Hopefully, Travis can recover and go on to success with or without football.

As always, Go Utes!

Spanish Fork, UT

That's a gut blow for the Utes, but terrible news for Travis. Very sorry to hear that. Always wish well to these young men and young women who work so hard to be great at what they do. I hope it is neither career ending or life challenging. Best wishes.

BYU fan hoping all is well. Dealing with people in my own line of work with TBI this is something that should never be taken lightly.

I am glad that college football and NFL are paying more attention to the effects of TBI.

Get well Wilson, hope you can come back completely healthy.

I really like Travis and wish him nothing but the best. Football is fun and Travis is a great QB but no game is worth endangering your long term neurological health over.

Best of luck to Travis and his family and friends.
