It's nice to get some good medical news, for a change, about a Utah QB. Would that bad medical news takes a vacation for the rest of the year.


Good news for him. Health is always a priority.


Whether he continues to be the starter in fall or not, this is great news! We need depth and it's great to see TW cleared to play. I'm still waiting to see what KT brings to the table.

Great news! Football aside I'm just glad he's okay. Head injuries are always scary and can be especially debilitating. Now we just need him to be healthy throughout the entire season. If he stays healthy and the O-line can shape up and give him a few more seconds to throw I think that we can have a pretty mean passing game with Anderson and Scott.

Syracuse, UT

This is fantastic news. Not because he is now able to play football, although that is excellent as well, but because he has been cleared medically. To know that you are safe and healthy is the most important thing, especially when dealing with injuries to the head area. Good luck to Wilson!

Salmon, ID

Good news - now transfer as fast as you can.

If anything this will increase the competition and assist the QB's to play better as they compete one with another. This has to be a bit of a burden lifted off of the coaching staff.

Probably the best news we could have received for Utah football this year.

Without Wilson, Utah would have been in seriously big trouble this year.

With Wilson, Utah is only in moderately big trouble.

But he's the best QB on the team and we need him.

From a BYU fan, this is great news for Travis. I wish him well and though it's hard to say Utah too.

I said it when this kid started - before his career was up he'd lead us to the Pac 12 title game.

2 years left and I still think we have a shot. If you look at the offenses coach Christensen has proven he can lead(even against power conference teams) we should be PUMPED about the possibilities this year. 35-40 points was the standard under Christensen.

This great news! Good luck Travis.

Football was a mere afterthought when news of his situation hit. As a die-hard Cougar fan I have been hoping and praying that Travis would be alright. Now that he is back to full-health and not having to face my team, I wish him the best of luck.

Dallas, TX

Football is entertainment. The type of injury that this young man had can be life or death. I pray that the injury has healed to the point where this is no longer a concern. But as someone who watched Reggie Lewis get cleared to play and then have tragic results, I hope and pray that all goes well for Travis. Even though I'm a Cougar fan, I will still watch his career and hope for good things for him, both on and off the field. May he live a long, rewarding and healthy life.

I'm happy for Travis, and not just for football. I'm sure he feels extremely relieved.

Riverton Cougar
Riverton, UT

Great news. I'm glad he's able to play. I would hate to have to change careers because of an injury.

Salmon, ID

I smell Roses!

Why, AZ

I am happy he is healthy, but I believe that someone else will be the QB for the Utes. And if this happens he will probably transfer to another school.

Eagle Mountain, UT

happy for Travis. I hope he is healthy the rest of his career, but christy come on. a Pac 12 championship in the next 2 years? maybe if UCLA Oregon USC Oregon St Stanford Washington Arizona and Arizona St somehow had huge infraction that disallowed them from winning a championship.

Great news for Travis, bad news for Utah if they think he is the answer for them at QB. He has lacked the durability to last an entire season, and will end up causing them to waste valuable reps on someone who most likely won't be around to finish the season.

Great news for a decent kid. The problem is that with a terrible o line he will get hit a lot and we all know he cannot take a hard hit without being in trouble.
