Colorado Buffaloes wide receiver and cornerback Travis Hunter will be out at least three weeks according to Deion Sanders, who told Carl Reed Jr. of 247Sports earlier this morning.

The hit on Hunter looked like a cheap shot, and unfortunately one of the most talented players in all of college football is now out of contention for the Heisman Trophy.

For the season Hunter has 16 catches for 213 yards through two games and most of one quarter, as well as nine total tackles, and interception and two pass breakups as the only true ironman in a Power Five conference.

The games Hunter will miss are crucial, as the 3-0 Buffs open the last season of Pac-12 play with Oregon, USC, and Arizona State the next three weeks. The Jacksonville State transfer came to Boulder along with his coach and plenty of other players that won the SWAC conference championship in 2022.

The Buffaloes are a 21-point underdog at Oregon on Saturday per DraftKings Sportsbook.
