Buffaloes defensive backs Parker Orms and Paul Vigo have been reinstated to the team according to Kyle Ringo. Orms and Vigo were two of the five DB's who were suspended for team rules violations five games ago. Josh Moten had already been reinstated. Ayodeji Olatoye and Liloa Nobriga are still suspended, but according to Embree both are working to rejoin the team.
Orms and Vigo are not expected to play against the Trojans but both could return for next week's home game against Arizona. CU announced Monday that game - the final home game of the season - will kickoff at 12:30 p.m., and will be televised by Fox College Sports Pacific.
Embree said both Orms and Vigo worked diligently to resolve the issues that led to their suspensions. Each has missed the past four games.
With Paul Richardson likely to return this week against the USC Trojans and Rodney Stewart hopeful to return soon, the Buffs seem to be getting a lot closer to a relatively healthy starting lineup prior to the final three games of the year.
