A Utah State spring football scrimmage ended Saturday with two of the four Aggie varsity quarterbacks in the hospital, said USU Coach Chuck Shelton.
Sophomore Kevin White fractured his right wrist during the scrimmage and sophomore Mark Smith was hospitalized for observation after suffering a concussion, said Shelton.Smith was expected to be back in action before spring football ends in two weeks, the coach said, but White "is probably out the rest of the spring. However, he'll be back in August competing for the No. 1 job."
The injuries, Shelton said, were the result "of the commitment this team has made this spring. It's been very physical."
During the scrimmage, Stewart Hansen completed 10 of 15 passing attempts for 125 yards, while Kirk Johnson was 10 of 19 for 98 yards. White was 5 of 8 for 55 yards before he was injured and Smith was 2 of 4 for 19 yards.
