The Colorado Buffaloes are expected to be without wide receiver Paul Richardson for Saturday evening's game against the No. 7 Stanford Cardinal. According to Kyle Ringo of Buffzone, Richardson has come down with an unspecified injury that will preclude him from playing.
Richardson had a breakout game against the California Golden Bears during the second week of the season when he caught 11 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns. He has been quiet in the three games since then, but he did catch a touchdown in last week's loss to the Washington St. Cougars. For the season, Richardson has 29 receptions for 474 yards and five touchdowns.
Ryan Deehan and Toney Clemons will likely receive a few more targets from Tyler Hansen, but running back Rodney Stewart should also be heavily involved in the passing game. He is second on the team with 24 receptions for 338 yards.
