Utah football players and coaches have returned to practice grieving one of their own who was killed in a shooting at a postgame party.

The team was on the field for the first time since defensive back Aaron Lowe was shot on Sept. 26.

His shooting death came just nine months after Lowe's friend and teammate, Ty Jordan, died in an accidental shooting.

The team was on a previously scheduled bye last week.

The team plans to officially memorialize Lowe soon.

Coach Kyle Whittingham wants to work with the school to permanently retire the number Lowe and Jordan wore on the field, No. 22.
