Colorado Buffaloes true freshman cornerback Sherrard Harrington injured his hip today in practice and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks according to Adam Munsterteiger. Already working to replace departed starters Jimmy Smith and Jalil Brown, the Buffaloes lost sophomore corner Jered Bell to a torn ACL this past Saturday. This most recent injury puts another dent in the Buffs secondary.
While the injury, and recovery time, aren't neccessarily that long, Harrington desperately needed this time to learn the defensive schemes and show the coaching staff what he could do. He wasn't expected to come in and immediately start, but with so little experience at the position anything would have been possible. Harrington is now expected to take a redshirt season this year. Let's hope for a quick recovery.
