Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes have anxiously awaited the return of dynamic two-way star Travis Hunter who has been recovering from the lacerated liver injury he suffered in the Buffs crazy game against Colorado State.
As it turns out, Hunter is still a few weeks out according to Coach Prime.
“Let’s say two or three [weeks],” Sanders responded when asked about Hunter’s anticipated recovery timeline. “It would be my dream and desire for him to stay out until after the bye week.”
The Buffaloes, who currently hold a 3-2 overall record and are 0-2 in the Pac-12, are scheduled to play against Arizona State this Saturday, followed by a home game against Stanford next week.
Following those matchups, Colorado will have a week off before traveling to face UCLA on October 28th.
Sanders provided a positive update on Hunter’s condition, stating: “Travis is doing well. He was out of practice today coaching his butt off. He’s one of the best coaches we have.”

Speaking of coaching, that seems to be exactly what he’s been doing the past few weeks – and many have taken notice…
“Travis Hunter, who PLAYS both sides of the ball, was COACHING both sides of the ball on Saturday … Travis explains how he helped two true freshman in Cormani McClain and Omarion Miller have breakout games against USC … Great player. Great teammate.”
