The Colorado Buffaloes host the USC Trojans on Friday and Paul Richardson and Rodney Stewart might return to action for the game.
The Colorado Buffaloes might have reinforcements on the way for Friday's game against the USC Trojans at Folsom Field. Running back Rodney Stewart and wide receiver Paul Richardson might be well enough recovered from their knee injuries that they'll be able to play, reports CUBuffs.com. Richardson has missed four games while Stewart has sat out the last two.
The Buffs' offense has struggled all season long, but especially in the last couple of weeks when Stewart was unable to play. Tyler Hansen had found Stewart as his main target once Paul Richardson went down with injury. However, even Richardson's stature as an offensive weapon was a bit exaggerated due to his 11 catches for 284 yards against the California Golden Bears.
Even with the team's two offensive stars likely to return, it will be a tough task for the Buffs to defeat the Trojans.
