Tyler Hansen Injury: Colorado QB Suffers Concussion In 2nd Quarter

Things just keep getting worse for the Colorado Buffaloes. The latest injury to hurt the Buffs was a concussion to quarterback Tyler Hansen late in the second quarter. At halftime, coach Jon Embree told KOA that the hit on Hansen should have been a penalty (via Dave Krieger).

Nicholas Hirschman entered the game for Hansen at the end of the half and will continue under center for the second half. Hansen is not returning for the second half, and, as Adam Munsterteiger points out, Hansen is the 21st Buffaloes player to be lost due to injury or suspension.

Colorado received the ball to start the second half and will look to chip away at the Ducks' 35-0 lead.
