Football has taken a back seat with the news Utah quarterback Travis Wilson's career could be over following a concussion.

Sometimes the play on the field is the least important part of college football. That is the case with Utah quarterback Travis Wilson who will miss the rest of the season after neurological tests revealed a pre-existing condition that could keep him from playing football ever again.

Wilson suffered a concussion two weeks ago and the pre-existing condition was discovered in an angiogram following the concussion. Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said he didn't think the condition was life-threatening, but it could be if Wilson continued to play football. Whittingham said the condition could be genetic and it would take several months before they know if Wilson will be able to play again.

WSU has had its share of scary injuries recently, with LeAndre Daniels' neck injury and James Montgomery's acute compartment syndrome quickly coming to mind. As was the case with those players, we're all hoping for the best for Wilson moving forward.

With Wilson out, Adam Schulz will start for Utah on Saturday against WSU. The sophomore made his first career start last week against Oregon, completing 13-of-30 passes for 181 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
