Pre-Spring Injury Report

There is good and bad news heading into spring ball for the Buffaloes. Some old faces are back and some players that CU needs healthy for next fall will completely miss the spring. Here is a complete rundown of the injury report. All of the bad news comes on the offensive side of the ball.

-Possibly the best news heading into next Monday's first practice is that CU is getting back its' best receiver and only legitimate deep threat, Blake Mackey. Mackey missed last season after hurting his knee in fall practices. He had surgery on August 16th. Without Mackey last fall, CU failed to get any kind of vertical passing game established. A big season was expected of him and as long as he shows to be healthy this spring, the same will be expected of the senior this fall.

-Wide Receiver Jarrell Yates is questionable after hurting his knee early last fall.

-Tailback Brandon Caesar is questionable after having knee surgery on July 29th. More will be known about his status either later this week or at the inception of spring ball.

-Offensive Tackle Tyler Polumbus is out after having surgery on his shoulder, January 10th. This is a blow to an already thin offensive tackle corps.

-Offensive Guard Daniel Sanders is questionable with an unknown injury. More will be known on his status later this week or by next Monday.

-Another blow to the thin offensive line is that periodical starter Jack Tipton will miss spring ball after knee surgery, December 16th.

-The only defensive player that was in question is former starting cornerback, Terrence Wheatley. He is full-go after having wrist surgery, August 10th.

The Buffalo Sports News will continue to post injury reports and keep CU fans up-to-date on the latest team info throughout spring ball.
