The Colorado Buffaloes had a lot of uncertainty leading up to their Friday game against Oregon. Now we at least know who’s playing.
Per our source, Laviska Shenault Jr. (core) is playing tonight. According to Brian Howell, K.D. Nixon (undisclosed), Mikial Onu (torso) and Aaron Maddox (laceration) are all suiting up. However, the Buffs will be without Mustafa Johnson (ankle), their best defender. Howell later reported that Jalen Sami (knee) is also playing after suffering a knee sprain against Arizona.
In addition to Johnson, the Buffs will be missing Chris Miller (ACL) and Mekhi Blackmon (shoulder), both of whom are out for the season. Offensive lineman Colby Pursell (gallbladder) is out indefinitely.
