SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Sports) – The news just keeps getting worse and worse for the Utes football team.

Four days after quarterback Tyler Huntley suffered a season-ending collarbone injury, leading rusher Zack Moss went down with a knee injury in practice on Wednesday, and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Moss posted this message on Twitter, “So many emotions. So many tears. I’m coming back stronger. God’s plan.”

The Utes are battling for the Pac-12 South title and host Oregon on Saturday. Armand Shyne will take over the lead back duties, and will try to take some of the pressure off of quarterback Jason Shelley.

Moss just went over the 1,000 yard mark for the second straight season, and was expected to be heavily leaned upon after Huntley’s injury.

In nine games this season, Moss rushed for 1,092 yards and 11 touchdowns. With four games remaining, Moss was on pace to break Utah’s all-time single season rushing record.

Shyne was Utah’s starter two years ago before suffering an injury himself and lost the starting job to Moss. This season, Shyne has 166 yards on 37 carries. TJ Green is expected to become Utah’s backup running back.
