Injury Update

Colorado continues to get healthier – overall. Still, defensive back and wide receiver remain areas of concern. With UCLA’s penchant to run the ball instead of pass, and with Colorado likely wanting to establish the running game as well (the Bruins are 95th in the nation in rushing defense), the passing game may not play as great a role as it has the past few games.

On the mend:

Brian Lockridge – (Sr.) – defensive back – suffered a sprained ankle v. Washington State – listed as “day-to-day” for yet another week

Anthony Perkins – (Sr.) – safety – suffered an ankle sprain nine plays into the Oregon game – trying to get back, but is still listed as “questionable”

Logan Gray – (Sr.) – wide receiver – suffered a bruised leg in second half of the USC game – listed as “day-to-day” for the second week in a row

Kyle Washington – (Fr.) – safety – suffered a concussion in the second quarter of the USC game, did not return; held out of Arizona game - listed as “day-to-day”

Parker Orms – (So.) – cornerback – suffered a hamstring pull in the second half against Arizona - listed as “questionable”

Paul Richardson – (So.) – wide receiver – suffered a concussion in the second half against Arizona; still hampered by the knee injury which kept him out for much of October - listed as “day-to-day” for UCLA

Rodney Stewart – (Sr.) – running back – suffered an ankle sprain in the first half against Arizona, but then returned to rush for 181 yards and three touchdowns – listed as “probable”

Chidera Uzo-Diribe – (So.) – defensive end – suffered a shoulder sprain in the second half v. Arizona – listed as “probable”


Suspended indefinitely – violations of team rules:

Ayodeji Olatoye – (So.) – defensive back – did play in the first four games of the season (no tackles)

Liloa Nobriga – (So.) – linebacker – dressed for two home games and CSU game, but had not yet played a down


Out for the Season:

Jared Bell– (Soph.) – defensive back – Out since August with a torn ACL

Doug Rippy – (Jr.) – linebacker – suffered torn ligaments in his knee against Washington – surgery pending

Blake Behrens – (Sr.) – offensive lineman – chronic shoulder and bicep tendinitis have ended his career (though he did get in for two snaps v. Arizona)

Tony Poremba – (Sr.) – defensive lineman – suffered a concussion in practice on October 4th, one of many in his career

Will Harlos – (Fr.) – defensive back – hamstring and concussion injuries have ended his season

Sherrard Harrington – (Fr.) – defensive back – suffered a hip contusion during the summer, decision to red-shirt made in August

Malcolm Creer – (Fr.) – running back – suffered a torn ACL and MCL 15 carries into his career – surgery pending

 Jack Harris – (Soph.) – offensive tackle – Out for the season with a broken ankle, surgery on September 22nd

Overall, Colorado has lost 99 games to date from player who figured to be in the two-deep roster, or just over 20 percent of the possible 484 (eleven games times 44 players). This total projects to be the second highest total of lost games since 1984.
