Colorado Buffaloes head coach Deion Sanders has addressed the possibility of star cornerback Travis Hunter returning to action this weekend. Hunter, who suffered a lacerated liver during the win against Colorado State, has been absent for the last three games. However, he has rejoined his teammates in practice this week and may be available for the Buffaloes’ upcoming game against Stanford on Friday night.
During a press conference on Tuesday, Coach Prime stated that there is a “tremendous chance” that Travis will play in the next game. Sanders emphasized that it will depend on how Hunter looks, performs, and his overall fitness level. The coach wants to ensure that Hunter is in shape and not a liability on the field. Sanders always wants him to be a valuable asset to the team.
In addition to being a cornerback, Hunter has also been practicing as a wide receiver. However, it remains uncertain whether he will play in both positions, given the amount of time he has been off the field. Deion Sanders speaks highly of Hunter and believes he would have played in previous games if given the chance. The outcome on Friday will be interesting to see.
