SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Utah quarterback Brian Johnson will be out at least three weeks with a separated right shoulder, an injury suffered in his first game since a blown out knee cost him the entire 2006 season.
The Utes also lost their top running back, Matt Asiata, for the season and two other players in a 24-7 loss to Oregon State on Thursday night.
Asiata broke his lower left leg and was scheduled to undergo surgery Friday. The junior college transfer could redshirt this season and be eligible for two more full seasons.
Tight end Colt Sampson will miss for four weeks with a sprained left knee and linebacker Matt Martinez is out for the season with a torn knee ligament.
Johnson tore ligaments in his left knee late in the 2005 season and spent last year working his way back. He showed great promise before the knee injury, completing 210 of 330 passes for 2,892 yards and 18 touchdowns and running for eight TDs.
Tommy Grady completed nine of 24 passes for 59 yards filling in for Johnson against Oregon State.
