Utah wide receiver Dres Anderson will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

The Utes announced the injury to their top receiver Wednesday. Anderson led No. 18 Utah with 355 yards receiving and four touchdowns.

The injury is a significant blow for an offense already scuffling a bit despite the team having won three consecutive games. The Utes (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12) face Arizona State in Tempe on Saturday as they try to stay on top of the Pac-12 South.

Anderson is a senior from Riverside, California. He was an honorable mention All-Pac 12 in 2013 when he had 1,002 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. He is the son of former NFL wide receiver Willie "Flipper" Anderson.
