USC QB Kedon Slovis was evaluated for concussion, got ‘dinged’
USC Trojans quarterback Kedon Slovis was evaluated for a concussion after taking a big hit on the second play of the Trojans’ first possession Friday night.
Slovis was nailed by Utah defensive lineman Leki Fotu and exited the game. He was replaced by Matt Fink, who played great and threw for 351 yards and three touchdowns.
After the Trojans’ 30-23 home win over the Utes, head coach Clay Helton said Slovis got “dinged” but knew what had happened.
Clay Helton on Kedon Slovis: "Kedon got dinged. He knew what play he ran and exactly what happened. But you could tell something was wrong."

Helton said they would provide a further update on the true freshman’s status on Tuesday.
Fink played so well that even if Slovis is cleared to play at Washington next week, it would be hard to go away from the junior.
The way USC has gotten strong play from three QBs this season — JT Daniels, Slovis, and Fink — is impressive and a credit to Helton, Graham Harrell, USC’s coaches, and the incredible talent the team has at wide receiver.
