Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said junior RB Zack Moss reinjured his knee climbing into bed.
Whittingham added the injury was "very strange" and his knee "locked up on him" when he was getting into bed. There's no timeline for Moss' return and some believe he may have played his last game this season. The Utes have been decimated by injuries the past few weeks with quarterback Tyler Huntley also out for the season with a broken collarbone. This team had Pac-12 title potential but with all of their recent injuries they likely won't stand a chance. Nov 11 - 9:11 AM

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss picked up a knee injury during Wednesday's practice and is likely to miss the rest of the season.

Reports from some indicate that Moss will undergo surgery on the knee, which would obviously put his season at an end. It's a terrible loss for the Utes, as Moss was the best player on the offense, if not just the team. Keep in mind Utah just lost quarterback Tyler Huntley to a broken collarbone as well. A devastating week of injuries for a Utah team that looked like a serious contender for the Pac-12 title not terribly long ago.

Utah junior RB Zack Moss carried the ball 18 times for 128 yards and a touchdown in a 38-20 loss to Arizona State on Saturday.

It was a very disappointing night for Utah that saw their starting quarterback get carted off the field. It was another strong game for Moss, however, who ran for his 11th touchdown of the season in the first half. He's scored in every game but the USC win, and he picked up 136 yards in that one. Moss will look to keep his streak alive next Saturday against Oregon.

The Draft Network's Benjamin Solak questions whether Utah junior RB Zack Moss is a good enough athlete to "survive" in the NFL.

Solak explains "His lack of elusive traits make it difficult for him to really break into the third level. Without the change of direction ability to make sudden cuts, he’s limited as a zone runner and has minimal efficacy on space touches." He also believes Moss will have durability concerns due to "ankle injuries in both legs, and with his running style, will take a pounding every week."

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss carried the ball 26 times for 211 yards with three touchdowns in a 41-10 rout of UCLA on Friday.

After UCLA's back-to-back wins, some thought this might be an exciting game, especially with the Bruins at home. Nope. Utah dominated, and Moss had arguably his most productive game as a member of the Utes in the rout. The junior tailback has now scored in every game but last week's win over USC, and he's up to 10 touchdowns on the year. Simply put, he's been as good -- if not better -- than any tailback in the conference in 2018. The red-hot Utes will look to maintain first place in the Pac-12 South against Arizona State next Saturday.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

The Draft Network's Trevor Sikkema believes Utah junior RB Zack Moss' "bulldozing game style has a place in the NFL."

Sikkema explains in-depth by saying the "5-foot-10, 220 pounds, Moss loves contact; he thrives in it. It just seems like the fiercer the defense in front of him, the more he enjoys the game." Moss has rushed for over 100 yards in 4-of-7 games and scored a touchdown in all but one game this season. He will look to continue his success next week against UCLA.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss rushed for 136 yards on 25 carries in Saturday's 41-28 win over USC.

Moss (5'10/215) now has over 100 rushing yards in 4-of-7 games this season. The junior back took advantage of the Trojans' linebacker injuries tonight on his way to averaging 5.44 yards per rush attempt. Despite the big yardage total, Moss was kept out of the end zone for the first time in 2018. His touchdown streak is likely to restart next week against UCLA however.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss ran for 68 yards and a score on 15 carries in a 45-10 crushing of Arizona on Friday.

Moss could have had a much bigger game if this game was remotely close, but it was 28-0 at halftime and Utah basically rested the junior for most of the second half. His touchdown was the seventh of the year, and he's scored in every game so far in 2018. He'll look to keep it going -- and likely have considerable more run -- next Saturday against USC.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss carried 20 times for 160 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 40-21 win at Stanford.

Moss has been a beast, posting at least one rushing touchdown in each of his five outings while totaling seven touchdowns. The South Floridian running back also has 13 rushing scores across his past 10 outings dating back to last season. He has back-to-back 100-yard performances, and three games hitting the century mark this season. Moss and his teammates will return home to face Arizona next Friday night.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss carried the ball 30 times for 106 yards with a score in a 28-24 loss to Washington State on Saturday.

Not the most efficient game, but he does get over the century mark and pick up the score. Moss (5'10/215) had to battle for every yard, as there weren't many holes created by the Utes' offensive line. Moss will look to get over the 100-yard barrier and score again next Saturday, but it won't be easy against Stanford.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss returned to Saturday's game against Washington a few plays after suffering an apparent right ankle injury.

Moss was able to return during the same drive on which he was injured, and he marched into the end zone from four yards out to tie the game at 7. Utah's unquestioned top option at running back, the junior accounted for 40 yards and a touchdown on seven carries in the first quarter.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss limped off of the field during the first quarter of Saturday's game against Washington due to an apparent right ankle injury.

Moss had the ankle re-taped but has not returned to the game just yet. The ankle is not the one that Moss injured late in Utah's win over Northern Illinois Sept. 8, and in the days leading up to Saturday's Pac-12 opener he said that the left ankle would not be an issue. Junior Armand Shyne and freshman Devin Brumfield would be next in line if Utah's top ball-carrier were unable to return.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that there are some scouts who view Utah junior RB Zack Moss as a second-round prospect.

Pauline doesn't go quite that far with his grade, assigning him a Round 3 evaluation, but the analyst is quite high on Moss in his own right. Notes the analyst of the 5-foot-10, 215-pounder, "He’s a nice-sized ball carrier with tremendous quickness, the ability to create yardage and enough strength to break tackles. He’s a terrific open-field runner who can also pick his way on the inside for critical yardage." We're likewise big fans of Moss around these parts. If you've yet to check him out, Utah will be hosting Washington on Saturday night, in what's their biggest game of the season. That will be an interesting one from an evaluating perspective, as this will be the best defense that Moss faces all season.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss (ankle) said "I’ll be ready to go for sure" for Saturday’s home game against Washington.

Moss dinged up his ankle late in last weekend's win over Northern Illinois. He said it won't effect his status against the Huskies. "No percentages on it right now," Moss said when asked how certain he was that he’d play. "But I’ll be ready to go for sure." We think that's 100-percent. Moss posted 1,173 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns last year.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah junior RB Zack Moss rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in Saturday's 17-6 win over Northern Illinois.

The Huskies shut the Utes out on the scoreboard in the first half, but they were able to get their offense going by degrees coming out of the locker room. Moss (5'10/217) was the one to break the seal, hitting the end zone from one yard out midway through the third quarter. A pair of fourth-quarter field goals -- plus an interception of Marcus Childers returned for a touchdown -- capped off the modest scoring effort by HC Kyle Whittingham's crew. A win is a win is a win, but Utah has now been slow to start in each of its first two games this season. They'll try to get things going a little faster against Washington next weekend, though that's far easier said than done against that elite defense.
