The Colorado Buffaloes headlined Friday night’s college football slate, taking on the Washington State Cougars. In the first quarter, Colorado QB Shedeur Sanders suffered an apparent injury. Sanders returned to the field near the end of the first quarter but then suffered a separate injury in the second quarter.
We have the latest injury updates on the future NFL Draft prospect.
Update: Head coach Deion Sanders said, “Travis is good,” during the postgame news conference. He said there haven’t been discussions as to whether Sanders will play again this season.
Latest Injury News on Shedeur Sanders
Sanders, one of the breakout prospects of the 2023 season, left the field almost midway through the second quarter. Colorado snapped the ball before Sanders was set. A defender going after the ball made contact with his upper back. He gingerly got up and was taken to the locker room.

In the first quarter, Sanders was hit by Washington State pass rusher Ron Stone Jr., fumbling the ball that was scooped for a touchdown return. He appeared to land on his throwing shoulder and held his arm close to his chest while walking off the field.
The junior passer missed the following drive but was seen on the sideline warming up. We’ll continue to monitor Sanders’ activity and statements from the team. Check back for updates throughout the evening.
