Colorado senior RB Donovan Lee (ankle) could potentially take a redshirt for the coming season.

Lee (5'9/175) sustained a broken ankle during spring practice and remains on the recovery trail. If he were to redshirt during the upcoming campaign, he would have one year eligibility remaining to wrap up his career in 2018. Lee's a versatile player who has tried his hand at receiver, running back and corner, but is not considered integral to the Buffs' offensive attack.

Colorado redshirt junior RB Kyle Evans (hip) participated in practice on Monday.

Evans is working his way back from hip surgery after dislocating his in a March scrimmage. The hope all along for Colorado was that he would be able to return by mid-August. Mission accomplished on that front. Assuming he is physically capable of taking the field, he will be working in a backup role behind Phillip Lindsay this season.

Colorado sophomore RB Beau Bisharat admitted that he "didn't know the plays very well last season."

Bisharat (6'2/215) does not foresee that being an issue this time around, saying, "This year it's a big advantage for me just knowing the plays and knowing how to read a play or when to be patient and when not to be patient." He spent the bulk of his freshman campaign working as a blocking back and saw just 15 carries for 45 yards as an offensive contributor. He is looking to work his way into a backup role behind Phillip Lindsay in preseason camp and has potential as a short-yardage option.

Colorado freshman WR Jaylon Jackson will miss the 2017 season after breaking his ankle in a Saturday scrimmage.

Jackson (5'10/175) underwent successful surgery on Saturday night. He has proven to be somewhat fragile in his young career, having twice sustained torn ACLs in high school. "He's extremely positive and he'll get it back and be ready to go again," said HC Mike MacIntyre.

Colorado senior WR Juwann Winfree (knee) has been participating in the opening days of camp.

"I just really can't wait. I'm excited. I don't know what's to come, but I'm going to give it my all and I'm just ready to make a contribution," Winfree said. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder caught 11 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns as a freshman with Maryland in 2014, then joined a JUCO program for the 2015 season after being dismissed from the Terps for a violation of team rules. "He's a big guy that is still explosive. He has the ability to get some run after the catch. He gives you a big target to throw to," said co-OC Brian Lindgren.

Colorado suspended sophomore S Anthony Julmisse indefinitely following an arrest due to a Sunday altercation.

Julmisse, a starter, reportedly got into the altercation on Sunday in Boulder. He faces charges of third-degree assault, domestic violence and two counts of harassment. Colorado HC Mike MacIntyre released the following statement regarding Julmisse's suspension: "Anthony has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities and we will determine any further disciplinary action after receiving more information. I am very troubled by these allegations, as they do not represent the values of our university and our football program. I have reported the allegations to the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance so that it may conduct any appropriate inquiries." Julmisse contributed on offense (as a WR), defense and special teams (as a primary kick returner) last year.

Colorado hopes that redshirt junior RB Kyle Evans (hip) will be able to take part in camp in about two weeks.

Evans (5'6/175) dislocated his hip during an early March scrimmage. He won't be physically ready for action at the start of August camp, but could potentially work his way back into the fold in the middle of the month. Evans rushed for 346 yards and three touchdowns while backing up Phillip Lindsay during the 2016 campaign.

Colorado dismissed junior LB N.J. Falo.

The Buffs cited a violation of team rules but did not provide a more specific reason for Falo's dismissal. He was in the news for the wrong reasons last April, when he was hit with three felony charges stemming from an alleged dorm-room robbery. Colorado subsequently suspended him for the first three games of the 2016 season as punishment. He recorded 12 tackles (1.5 TFL) after being reinstated.

Colorado redshirt junior LB Drew Lewis has broad jumped 10’10", better than any linebacker at this year’s NFL combine.

Lewis (6'2/200) can also power clean 345, second-most on the team, and squat 435 for six reps. His father, Will, played corner the NFL and is now the director of scouting for the Kansas City Chiefs, and his uncle, Tim, is a former first-round pick as a DB by the Green Bay Packers. Lewis' older brother, Ryan, is a CB at Pitt, and three other cousins also played football at Pitt, including former NFL DB and now ESPN analyst Louis Riddick.

BSN Buffs' Chase Howell writes that last season, it was "exceptionally hard for nickel corners and safeties to try and cover [Colorado redshirt junior WR Devin Ross] at the slot receiver (or H) position."

"Ross is going to be able to do much of the same this year," Howell writes, "with defensive backs having to also focus their attention on CU’s outside receivers it should leave the speedster plenty of room down the middle to do what he does best." During the past campaign, the 5-foot-9, 180-pounder hauled in 69 passes for 787 yards and five touchdowns. Shay Fields is the team's big-dog wideout, but Ross should not be overlooked -- Thor Nystrom loves him as an option in deeper fantasy formats, slotting him into his 2017 wideout rankings at No. 121.

Colorado redshirt senior RB Michael Adkins is back to full health after missing the majority of the 2015 and 2016 seasons with hamstring and knee injuries.

Senior Phillip Lindsay is slated to start and produced over 1,700 total yards last year. Adkins will likely have a role if he can stay healthy, possibly in place of an injured Kyle Evans.

Texas Tech junior WR Tony Brown transferred to Colorado.

Brown's transfer is not exactly the most traditional of moves -- he will not be enrolling at Colorado until after the 2017 season. His departure is one of several noticeable ones from the Red Raiders this offseason, as both DT Breiden Fehoko and WR Jonathan Giles had previously transferred over to LSU. Brown (6'1, 187 pounds) caught 13 passes for 128 yards this past season. He will have two years of eligibility remaining once he joins Colorado this coming winter.

Colorado's Board of Regents approved a contract extension for HC Mike MacIntyre that will keep him with the school through the 2021 season.

MacIntyre will be paid $16.25 million over the length of the contract. This is not a boilerplate extension, as it had been in the air for some time -- just last week, the Board of Regents ordered MacIntyre and AD Rich George to each pay $100,000 to domestic violence causes after assistant Joe Tumpkin was kept on staff despite allegations of violence against an ex-girlfriend which surfaced this past winter. Tumpkin has since been fired.

Colorado redshirt sophomore CB Dante Wigley is in the running to replace either Ahkello Witherspoon and Chidobe Awuzie at corner.

A three-star junior college transfer, Wigley redshirted at Georgia Tech in 2015 before spending a year in the JUCO ranks. Now with three years of eligibility remaining, Wigley practiced at both cornerback and nickel back this spring for the Buffaloes. "We're excited about having Dante here," head coach Mike MacIntyre said. "He is a very physical, athletic corner. He is catching on to everything, working hard and doing great in school, so I am excited about what Dante has done so far and I expect him to help us a lot this fall."

ESPN's Kyle Bonagura believes Colorado senior WR Bryce Bobo is the best NFL prospect on the Buffaloes.

What's interesting about this opinion is that Bobo is -- or, more accurately, has been -- the No. 3 receiver behind Shay Fields and Devin Ross in Colorado's aerial pecking order. All three return in 2017. "At 6-2, he's a little bigger than the other two," wrote Bonagura of Bobo, "and was a Pac-12 honorable mention selection in 2016 after catching 41 passes for 523 yards."
