Travis Hunter injury update: Colorado football star's status for Stanford game
As he recovers from an injury, Colorado's star two-way football player Travis Hunter might be ready to play against Stanford on Friday,
according to Buffaloes head coach Deion Sanders."There is a great possibility that he will play. He must be physically fit. Sanders said
, according to Brian Howell of the Boulder Daily Camera, "I do not want him to be a liability. Hunter was hit hard by Rams safety Henry Blackburn on September 16 during
Colorado's overtime victory over Colorado State, resulting in an on-the-field trip to the hospital.
A significant step toward Hunter being able to return to live action soon was the fact that he was recently spotted at a Colorado practice.
If Hunter is able to return by Friday, the team's initial forecast that he would miss three games before being able to play again would be accurate.
Since then, Colorado has lost two straight games to Oregon and USC by a combined score of 90 points,
. Coach Sanders stressed the value of protecting Hunter's health in his press conference and said that the player's recovery comes before the game.
