Colorado State Injury Report: Rams Likely Getting RB Chris Nwoke Back

The Colorado St. Rams only have a few injuries when they take on the Utah State Aggies on Saturday, but the big news is the likely return of starting running back Chris Nwoke.

Getting Nwoke back would be a huge boost, and he is very much needed since Utah State's defensive front seven is very good. The Aggies shutdown Utah's John White IV, and were able to slow down Wisconsin's Montee Ball by stonewalling their offensive line.

As for injuries, backup running back Donnell Alexander who has been filling in for Nwoke has an ankle injury that could have him miss Saturday's game.

The big injuries for the Rams this week come in their secondary. Cornerback Bernard Blake is questionable with a hamstring injury, and Momo Thomas is doubtful with shoulder issues. Thomas also is a punt returner and he is likely to be replaced by Joe Hansley, Lee Clubb, Thomas Coffman or Jasen Oden.

Then there is defensive end John Froland is not 100 percent as he has been slowed down with a neck stinger. The hope for Froland is that he could see some time on passing downs against Utah State.
