I guess it's unrealistic to hope to get out of fall practice without any injuries or incidents, but this Colorado team needs all the reinforcements they can get and they are now going to be without two players at an already thin postion. Buffaloes wide receivers Jeffrey Thomas (Fr.) and DaVaughn Thornton (Jr.) have each been suspended for the first two games against Colorado State and Sacramento State after an incident over the weekend landed a number of Buffaloes in hot water with the law.

Jered Bell, Keenan Canty, Jermane Clark, Joshua Moten, Thomas, Thornton, Paul Vigo, and Derrick Webb were all pulled over early Saturday morning for waving a realistic looking pellet gun at one of the other cars the group was traveling in. The players were released, but officers alerted the athletic department to the transgressions.
Buffzone reporter Kyle Ringo has also reported that Buffs linebacker Jermane Clark is no longer with the football team due to the incident and some family issues.
Let's hope this is the only incident we see this fall.
