BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The University of Colorado football team has lost two more players for the season.
Safety Anthony Perkins played the entire second half at Missouri on Saturday with a torn ACL and running back Brian Lockridge needs ankle surgery.
Coach Dan Hawkins said sophomore receiver Will Jefferson will move to tailback, a position he played in high school, and could play in the backfield as soon as Saturday when the Buffaloes (3-2, 0-1 Big 12) host Baylor (4-2, 1-1).
Perkins is the fifth Buffaloes defensive back to suffer a serious injury this fall. Vince Ewing and Parker Orms are out for the year with torn knee ligaments and Travis Sandersfeld and Paul Vigo have lower leg fractures but are expected to return soon.
