Sophomore running back Darrell Scott has suffered another setback. According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Scott will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on Thursday morning and will not play this week against Kansas State this coming Saturday, Buffs football coach Dan Hawkins said Wednesday.
The surgery is considered minor but according to the cubuffs.com twitter account, he could miss up to three weeks. Supposedly this is the same lingering knee injury suffered in the Toledo game back in September that has hampered Scott's playing time.
Darrell Scott started last week against Kansas but still saw limited action as Rodney Stewart received most of the time and was the most productive back. For the season, Scott has 23 carries for 95 yards. He has been used a little in the passing game as well.
Scott has done most of his damage on kickoff return this year, totaling 564 yards on 21 attempts. He is 33rd in the nation in all purpose yards.
Just 13 days ago, the Boulder Daily Camera quoted running backs coach Darian Hagan before the Texas game saying that Darrell Scott had his best week of practice since joining the Colorado Buffaloes program.
