Utah senior RB John White broke his arm on the way to rushing for 168 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries Friday against Colorado.
The Utes are not bowl eligible, so this effectively ends White's senior season. Broken arms can heal faster than most other significant injuries, so we may see White at one of the postseason all star games. Although he has run more tentatively this year, White could earn a late round grade from NFL teams. Sat, Nov 24, 2012 11:01:00 AM

Utah senior RB John White is expected to play against Arizona State despite being limited all week with an ankle injury.

White did not play last week against BYU and has had a slow start to the season, rushing for 4.3 yards per carry after averaging 5.1 last season. The senior looks more tentative this season, which is a change from 2011, but perhaps the extra week of recovery will bring out the healthy runner.

Junior college transfer John White nailed down Utah's starting RB role during impressive fall camp.

Utah’s leading returning rusher isn’t even a running back. In fact, he is now playing defense. In other words, jobs in the backfield were available in fall camp. Former JC star John White emerged as the No. 1 running back and will start against Montana State on Thursday night. Coach Kyle Whittingham indicated there were be a cap – a sort a carry count, if you will – on White’s number of rushing attempts, though he will get the bulk of the work. Harry Langi and Tauni Vakapuna are among those that could spell White.
