ASU coach Graham: Taylor Kelly did not suffer concussion

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State quarterback Taylor Kelly appears on track to start Saturday against No. 18 Utah after coach Todd Graham confirmed Tuesday that Kelly did not suffer a concussion in ASU's win over Washington last week.

Asked individually after his daily meeting with reporters if Kelly had suffered a concussion, Graham responded: "No, he did not have a concussion."

That would indicate Kelly passed the concussion test administered on the sideline after he took a hit to the helmet as he threw a touchdown pass with three minutes left in the game. The test was performed after Kelly got up slowly, appearing dazed, and stumbled before jogging off the field.

On Tuesday, Kelly ran the first team offense in practice without restriction.


Against Washington, Kelly was returning from a six-week absence due to a foot injury. He completed 14 of 25 passes for 180 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
