Paul Richardson Injury Update: Colorado WR Ruled Out For First 2 Games

Paul Richardson was not expected to get on the field right away for the Colorado Buffaloes after tearing his ACL and undergoing a mid-April surgery. His progress in recovery the past few months had given a bit of optimism in regards to a moderately quick return. However, if that return does happen, it's officially not going to be in the first couple of weeks of the upcoming season.

Coach Jon Embree broke the news of Richardson's sitting for the first two weeks to The Daily Camera and Buffzone:

"He's not ready," Embree said. "He hasn't run any routes really yet. He hasn't done any team work, timing, all those issues.

"He'll have to get some time with us – when I say us, I mean the players on the field – before we say, 'Yeah, he's ready to go.'"

So far there has been no indication on when Richardson is expected to fully return to practices and then eventually to the team proper for games.

Colorado's home opener will be on September 8 against Sacramento State.
