Colorado State LB Mychal Sisson Breaks Ankle, Potentially Out for the Year

Colorado State's best defensive player, LB Mychal Sisson will potentially miss the rest of the season with a broken ankle. Sisson suffered the injury on punt return coverage against Northern Colorado Saturday. The Rams defeated the Bears 33 - 14 in Fort Collins.

Mychal Sisson, a senior who has started since he was a freshman, had 91 total tackles a year ago, 4.5 sacks and 15 total tackles for loss. This is a big blow for a Rams defense that has only allowed 24 points over the first two games of the year, ranking 18th in the country. Sisson also led the nation a year ago forcing seven fumbles en route to a second team All Mountain West selection. For his career, Sisson had 291 total tackles, 38.5 tackles for loss and 11 sacks.

Also, starting fullback Austin Gillmore went down with a right knee injury on CSU's first offensive play Saturday.. Gillmore's backup, Jake Levin, also left the game with a knee injury. Defensive tackle also had a knee injury. Colroado State head coach Steve Fairchild called all three of these injuries very serious after the game.

The Rams also lost defensive end Broderick Sargent to a torn ACL in their season opening win against the New Mexico Lobos.

The Colorado Buffaloes have also had their fair share of injuries so far in the early season. Starting LT David Bakhtiari missed last week's game against California with a sprained MCL. His status is unknown for the CSU game. Starting RT Jack Harris is potentially out for a good part of the year with a lower leg injury. Head coach Jon Embree said Harris would be evaluated today but it was either a severe sprained ankle or a broken ankle. If Bakhtiari and Harris can't return, Ryan Dannewitz and Sione Tau will be called on again to anchor the tackle positions.
