Davon Riddick Injury: Colorado State RB Will Have Surgery To Fix Wrist

The Colorado St. Rams are still getting ready for their 2012 season, but they have received some unwelcome bad news before their first game kicks off. Running back Davon Riddick, who was poised to have a breakout season, broke his wrist during last Saturday's scrimmage and will need to have surgery to repair it.

Christopher Dempsey of the Denver Post reports that head coach Jim McElwain doesn't know how much time Riddick will miss as a result of the injury. The Rams coach is understandably disappointed.

"He kind of fell on his wrist and we didn't think much about it, but the x-ray shows he'll probably need surgery," McElwain said. "He was really having a great camp. I feel real bad about that."

Riddick will undergo surgery on Wednesday. Chris Nwoke is still set to be the starting running back. With Riddick out, Donnell Alexander, Tommey Morris and Mark Woodbury will compete for time at the backup position.
