Football camp: Day 10 (PM)

The Utes seem to be hitting the dog days of fall camp.
Coach Kyle Whittingham wasn’t too thrilled with the afternoon practice, about the same as he was after the morning practice.
“It was an OK work day, nothing spectacular by any stretch,” Whiitingham said, after still another practice that went a half hour overtime.
“We’re there, but we’ve just got to execute better,” said quarterback Jordan Wynn of the somewhat sloppy practice.
Twelve players were in the injury “pit” Monday, mostly non-starters. Freshman safety Damian Payne was on crutches after injuring his lower leg in the morning. Whittingham said he may be out two to three weeks. Another safety, sophomore Victor Spikes, got dinged in the head and could be out a few days. Whittingham lamented that the Utes are getting a little thin at the safety position. He also said linebacker J.J. WIlliams was a couple of weeks away from playing, but said he’d probably find a way to play the opener against Pitt.
Cornerbacks coach Jay Hill confirmed that projected starting corner Lamar Chapman would be back for Tuesday’s scrimmage after sitting out for more than a week.
