Reports: Hunter to miss Colorado’s next three games due to injury 

Colorado will be without its two-way star the next three weeks, according to multiple reports. 

According to Carl Reed Jr. of 247 Sports, Buffaloes head coach Deion Sanders said sophomore cornerback and wide receiver Travis Hunter “will be out for 3 weeks.” 

Hunter exited Saturday’s game due to injury after taking a late hit midway through the first quarter. Officials threw flags for pass interference and unsportsmanlike conduct against Colorado State on the hit and play of which Hunter was hit.

Hunter later left the game in the third quarter and was transported to a local hospital for evaluation. 

Hunter’s absence will be a big blow over the next three weeks. No. 19 Colorado will travel to No. 10 Oregon this week for another big road challenge before hosting No. 5 USC on Sept. 30, and then the Buffaloes’ third game in Hunter’s absence will be on the road at Arizona State.
