Colorado star receiver Paul Richardson has decided to redshirt this year rather than rush back from a torn knee ligament. Richardson tore his left ACL in the spring but had made such good progress in his recovery that he had circled the Buffaloes' Sept. 22 game against Washington State for his possible return. Instead, the junior said Wednesday that he had decided to take this season off ''and get healthy.'' Coach Jon Embree said as much as he'd love to have him back, he was relieved Richardson had decided to take things slowly. Richardson has caught 73 passes for 1,069 yards and 11 touchdowns in two seasons. He really burst onto the scene with an 11-catch, 284-yard, two-TD performance against Cal last fall.
