Laviska Shenault Jr. will be out for Saturday’s game vs. the No. 15 Washington Huskies, as announced by KOA before the game. This is the first game he’ll miss in his career due to injury. Shenault was listed as questionable this week after suffering a toe injury in the 31-20 loss to USC. He’s currently third in FBS with 60 receptions for 780 yards and 11 total touchdowns, and leads the nation with an average of 130.2 yards receiving per game.

Colorado will also be without Delrick Abrams, James Stefanou, and Jay MacIntyre, who was taken out of last week’s game and listed as doubtful in the concussion protocol. However, a bit of good news for the Buffaloes going into Seattle as Juwann Winfree returns to the lineup after missing the past four games with an ankle sprain. He’ll likely be a go-to option in place of Shenault, along with seldom-used wideouts Kabion Ento and Jaylon Jackson. Winfree is due for a breakout game with his last one coming last November vs. USC.
