Sacramento State Takes On Colorado Buffaloes

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — The Colorado Buffaloes could have three true freshmen playing in their banged-up secondary Saturday against Sacramento State, including highly touted cornerback Yuri Wright, who’s eager to repay coach Jon Embree for giving him a second chance.

Senior safety Ray Polk and sophomore cornerback Greg Henderson were knocked out of Colorado’s 22-17 loss to rival Colorado State last week with sprained ankles. Polk’s injury is more severe and could cost him several weeks.

If Henderson can’t play Saturday against the Big Sky’s Hornets, Wright will step in alongside fellow freshmen Kenneth Crawley, who started at left cornerback last week, and safety Marques Mosley, who’s also expected to get plenty of playing time.

Colorado (0-1) has never started two true freshmen cornerbacks in a game.
