Colorado Buffaloes quarterback Shedeur Sanders is currently listed as “day-by-day,” according to his father and head coach, Deion Sanders. Whether Shedeur will take the field in the Buffaloes’ season finale against Utah remains uncertain.
Expressing concern for his son’s well-being, Deion Sanders mentioned, “Shedeur is not feeling well right now. We are praying that he gets healthy, and he’s able to play because he is who he is, and when he’s on the field, we have a tremendous chance to win.”
Shedeur exited the recent 56-14 loss to Washington State due to numbness in his hand and was sidelined for the remainder of the game as a precaution. Despite ranking 10th in FBS with impressive stats of 3,230 passing yards and a 27-to-3 touchdown pass-to-interception ratio, Shedeur has faced challenges, notably being sacked more times than any other quarterback in the league (52).
With bowl eligibility out of reach, Deion Sanders was asked if the upcoming game against Utah is about playing for pride. Responding, he emphasized the need to play for the love of the game and personal commitment, saying, “You got to play because this is the life you chose. Nobody’s forcing you to go out there to play.”
Praising Utah’s head coach Kyle Whittingham, the third-longest-tenured coach in FBS since 2005, Sanders expressed deep admiration, calling him “a legend” and someone he truly respects.
Facing Utah as a 22-point underdog, Colorado (4-7, 1-7 Pac-12) aims for a victory to avoid a sole last-place finish in the Pac-12 standings.
