Dalton Kincaid, tight end for the Utah Utes, seemed to have hurt himself badly during game time. Kincaid had visible injury marks and was also seen with his arm in a support sling. Kincaid had the third score of the night for his team - a catch late in the third quarter - but came up from it injured. Staff then took him to the medical tent and he never returned to action. Kincaid stayed on the sidelines without his helmet - a telling sign that he was out.

Insane to pass him the ball there!” “He shouldn’t have been out there for that play,” someone said, echoing the sentiments of the majority. “No shit. Why put him right back in,” another asked. A tweet read, “Alright can Dalton Kincaid sit out the rest of the game now. Thanks.”
