Even though he wasn't sacked, Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn didn't come out of the Utes' 27-24 overtime win against Pitt unscathed.
The sophomore quarterback sprained his thumb and is day-to-day, according to Utah officials.
Wynn was 21-of-36 for 283 yards and three touchdowns, with one interception, in Thursday's victory.
He sprained his thumb in the second half, but after the game, he said he was fine.
"I had a couple of missed throws," he said.
Linebackers Jamel King (hamstring) and J.J. Williams (foot) missed the game with injuries.
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said after that there were no serious injuries.
The Utes have Friday and Saturday off and don't play again for a week, when they host UNLV on Sept. 11 at 2 p.m. at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
If Wynn can't go, the Utes have an experienced backup in Terrance Cain, a senior who started the first eight games of the 2009 season.
Cain, who was replaced by Wynn at halftime of the Wyoming game, finished the year 137-of-215 for 1,624 yards and 11 touchdowns.
He had strong spring and fall camps, although Whittingham made it clear there was no quarterback controversy.
Cain led the Utes to a 35-15 win against the Rebels last year, going 17-of-24 passing for 174 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed eight times for 22 yards and a touchdown.
