PROVO, Utah - BYU freshman quarterback Taysom Hill suffered a knee injury in the last seconds of Friday night's win against Utah State.

The injury came late in the fourth quarter on Hill's 19th carry of the game. He stayed in the game as Utah State called their final timeout, then took a knee on the final two snaps of the game as the clock ran out. BYU topped Utah State 6-3 in the game.

A BYU spokesman told Jay Drew of the Salt Lake Tribune that the extent of Hill's injury and related status is currently being evaluated and any updates will be provided on Monday.

Hill has started the last two games in place of injured starter Riley Nelson. BYU plays Oregon State next week.
