The Colorado Buffaloes will be without three members of the secondary. Ray Polk and Jason Espinoza are out with concussion symptoms and Brian Lockridge is dealing with an ankle issue, according to Buffzone.com's Kyle Ringo. These injuries are in addition to running back Rodney Stewart, linebacker Douglas Rippy and wide receiver Paul Richardson being ruled out earlier in the week.
For the Oregon Ducks, running back LaMichael James is doubtful with his elbow injury and Darron Thomas is questionable to start at quarterback. Kenjon Barner will shoulder the load at running back most likely and Bryan Bennett would start behind the center if Thomas is unable to play. But that's still enough firepower to keep the Buffs down.
