Travis Hunter returns to Colorado Buffaloes practice after missing three games with a lacerated LIVER

Colorado Buffaloes’ two-way superstar Travis Hunter has taken a promising step forward in his recovery after he was recorded returning to practice on Monday.

Hunter missed the Buffaloes’ last three games with a lacerated liver after suffering a dirty hit against rival Colorado State.

Head coach Deion Sanders previously stated that he was hoping to get the 20-year-old back after the team’s bye week, which would have set him up to return on October 28 against UCLA, however his participation in one-on-one drills on Monday indicated he may be able to suit up in Friday’s game against Standford.

Before being injured Hunter had been impactful on both sides of the ball, racking up 16 catches for 213 yards on offense and recording six tackles and an interception on defense.

He was recently seen hugging in things out with Colorado State safety Henry Blackburn, who delivered the liver-lacerating illegal hit.

During Hunter’s absence, Colorado was dismantled 42-6 by Oregon before suffering a 48-41 loss to USC.

The Buffaloes did however pick up a narrow 27-24 win over Arizona State in their third game without Hunter.

Colorado nearly had to add coach Sanders himself to the injured list after he missed a radio appearance due to a bad reaction to an IV, but he is expected to be on the sidelines for Friday’s game against Stanford.

Assistant coach Gary Harrell appeared on the show in Sanders’ place.
