Colorado Football Star Travis Hunter Injured in Rivalry Game

Colorado football standout Travis Hunter is facing a setback in the wake of a recent tough break. Hunter, a star player for the Colorado team, is expected to be sidelined for several weeks due to an unspecified injury. This injury occurred during a heated game against Colorado State, which eventually resulted in a double-overtime victory for Colorado. Head coach Deion Sanders provided this update, shedding light on Hunter’s condition.

In the early stages of the game, Hunter endured a heavy hit from Colorado State’s safety, Henry Blackburn, during the first quarter. The impact was so forceful that Hunter needed immediate attention from the team’s medical staff. Referees penalized Blackburn for his rough tackle. Hunter briefly returned to the field but was later withdrawn and transported to a hospital for further evaluation.

While it remains unclear whether Blackburn’s tackle directly led to Hunter’s injury, the intensity of the in-state rivalry game was evident. Buffaloes’ quarterback, Shedeur Sanders, confronted Blackburn in defense of his teammate after the hit.

Travis Hunter’s journey to Colorado began when he joined the team via the transfer portal after Deion Sanders took over as the head coach. Originally committing to Sanders at Jackson State as a highly-rated cornerback prospect, he made the move to Colorado for the current season.

Colorado’s hard-fought victory over their in-state rivals, Colorado State, in a double-overtime thriller, maintained their unbeaten record. They are now gearing up for a crucial matchup against Oregon in the upcoming weekend.
