Sources – Colorado’s Travis Hunter likely in, on snap count

Awaited Return: Colorado’s Travis Hunter Set to Play Against Stanford

Highly talented Colorado football star, Travis Hunter, is expected to make his long-awaited return to the field this Friday against Stanford at 10 p.m. ET, in a game broadcasted by ESPN. Sources close to the team have informed ESPN that the coaching staff will closely monitor Hunter during the pregame warm-up to ensure he is fully prepared.

Hunter, an exceptional player who excels as a cornerback and wide receiver, suffered a lacerated liver during a game against Colorado State on September 16. However, he has been given the green light to play after receiving medical clearance and participating in team practices.

Although Hunter is set to play on both offense and defense, it’s worth noting that his playing time will be closely managed. Sources indicate that the coaching staff aims to prevent him from accumulating a high number of snaps, especially in light of his impressive performances in the first two games of the season.

In a press conference on Tuesday, Coach Deion Sanders expressed optimism about Hunter’s return, stating that he had a “tremendous chance” to play. However, Sanders emphasized the importance of ensuring Hunter is fully fit and ready to contribute positively to the team’s performance. Sanders shared Hunter’s commitment to the team, revealing that the talented player had approached him asking how he could further assist the team in achieving its goals.

Hunter has already made a significant impact on Colorado’s performance this season. In his debut against TCU, he logged an impressive 146 snaps, which included an interception, 11 receptions for 119 yards, and defensive contributions such as nine tackles and two pass breakups. Unfortunately, it was during this game that Hunter sustained his injury due to an illegal hit by Colorado State safety Henry Blackburn. Despite the injury, Hunter remained in the game but was later taken to a local hospital for treatment.

“He’s cleared and he has protection on to secure those areas, but the game is the game,” Sanders explained. “The game is a violent game, it’s a vicious game, it’s a very physical game, but Travis is also physical.”
