Colorado Vs. Fresno State: Buffaloes LB Doug Rippy 'Doubtful' For Saturday's Game

Colorado Buffaloes senior linebacker Doug Rippy is "doubtful" for Saturday's game against Fresno State, according to head coach Jon Embree.

Rippy's knee injury, which has kept him limited in preseason and the team's first two games, will in all likelihood mean sophomore Brady Daigh will make his first NCAA start, via Brian Howell of Buffzone.com:

"Brady has played very well, special teams and when he's been in the game (on defense)," Embree said. "He's ready. I'm not overly concerned about him being in there. He's played a lot of football for us and he's done well when he's been in there."

Daigh has been in on five tackles in limited action this season. A year ago, Daigh played just 82 snaps on defense, but made 18 tackles for a team-best one tackle for every 4.6 plays.

Sophomore Kyle Washington should also see increased playing time, assuming Rippy is sidelined.
