SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Utah quarterback Brian Johnson is throwing passes again, more than two weeks after a shoulder injury, but the Utes' big victory over UCLA may allow him extra time to mend.
Tommy Grady threw three touchdown passes Saturday in a 44-6 upset of the then-No. 11 Bruins.
``Tommy's play gives us a luxury to bring (Johnson) back conservatively,'' coach Kyle Whittingham said. ``We want to bring him back as soon as possible, but we don't want to compromise him.''
Johnson was injured in the opener against Oregon State. The Utes were 0-2 before the victory against UCLA.
Johnson missed the 2006 season while recovering from knee surgery.
``It feels good and has been getting better every day,'' Johnson said of his shoulder. ``I'm ready to get back on the field.''
Utah plays UNLV on Saturday.
