Over the last several weeks of training camp in the UFL, several teams have injured essential players and needed to add them to the league’s injured list. Up to this point, the Brahmas have been very lucky with regard to injuries and have not had to move any players to the injured list. Today, the luck has run out, as the UFL has Brahmas defensive back Quincy Wilson listed as an injured player in its latest press release.

Wilson’s injury could not have happened at a worse time. This week is the Brahmas’ final training camp week, and at the end of the week, San Antonio will have to make its final player cuts. For the Brahmas, Wilson’s injury is a significant loss to a key position group for their defense.

In December 2023, Wilson signed with the Houston Roughnecks before the XFL-USFL merger to form the UFL. The Brahmas selected Wilson in the 2024 UFL dispersal draft. Wilson was one of the many former Roughnecks selected by head coach Wade Phillips and general manager Marc Lillibridge. Wilson was one of many players chosen to join the Brahmas from the Roughnecks roster.

Wilson came to the UFL after spending time with several NFL teams. After playing college football at the University of Florida, Wilson was selected in the 2017 NFL Draft in the 2nd round by the Indianapolis Colts. After being drafted, Wilson played with the Colts from 2017 until 2019, and in 2019, the New York Jets for the 211th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to obtain Wilson. Jets waived Wilson, and then the New York Giants signed him in 2021 but was released after being added to the injured list. After leaving New York, Wilson spent time with the Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers.

For the Brahmas, losing an NFL-quality defensive back to an injury could be difficult to overcome early in the 2024 season. The Brahmas defense has a wealth of talent among the defensive line, edge rusher, and linebacker units. Defensive back is a critical position for all UFL teams, and for the Brahmas, it is a position that needs more star power than the other defensive positions. With final roster cuts approaching quickly, the decisions the Brahmas make about their defensive backs could determine how good the Brahmas defense could be during the 2024 UFL season.
