Colorado State freshman RB Marvin Kinsey Jr. suffered a torn ACL during Saturday's practice.

As a result, HC Mike Bobo confirmed, Kinsey will miss the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl later this month. Kinsey was impressive in a backup role during his first year on campus, rushing for 546 yards and seven touchdowns on 93 carries (5.9 ypc). Dalyn Dawkins and Izzy Matthews will divvy carries against Idaho in the bowl game.

Former Tennessee sophomore WR Preston Williams announced his transfer to Colorado State.

247 Sports' John Brice reported Williams was interested in west coast schools, and Colorado State is certainly closer to that location than Tennessee. Brice added Williams was interested in playing at the JUCO level before a potential transfer, but those details have not emerged. Williams caught 16 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns during his time with the Vols, and he will likely have to sit out the 2017 season.

Colorado State received a verbal commitment from 2017 JUCO WR Demarre Kitt.

Kitt initially signed with Clemson as part of the 2014 recruiting class. Rivals ranked him as the No. 121 overall prospect for that cycle. He played one year with the Tigers, recording five catches for 47 yards. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder opted to move on from Clemson in December of his freshman year and has since suited up for a pair of junior college programs. As a JUCO transfer, Kitt will be eligible to play immediately with the Rams in 2017.

247Sports' John Brice reports that Tennessee sophomore WR Preston Williams is leaving the team.

Brice writes that Williams is interested in joining a JUCO program immediately. Beyond that, a potential cross-country jump could be in order, as the 6-foot-4, 209-pounder "has researched multiple West Coast schools, including the University of Southern California." In 12 games (three starts) with Tennessee over these past two years, Williams caught 16 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns. He was graded as a four-star recruit out of high school.

Colorado State true freshman QB Collin Hill will miss the remainder of the 2016 season due to a torn left ACL.

Hill tore his ACL against Utah State on Saturday, with the injury confirmed on Sunday after an MRI. HC Mike Bobo explained the circumstance, saying, "It was non-contact. He was just planting off his left foot, and it buckled. Tough thing for Collin, tough for our football team." The 6-foot-5, 210-pound freshman was installed as starter in Week 3 and since taking over the reigns, had thrown for 1,070 yards with an 8/2 TD/INT ratio in three-plus contests. Nick Stevens -- who lost his job due to extreme ineffectiveness -- closed out the Utah State contest after Hill was injured and is expected to act as starter moving forward.

Colorado State redshirt junior RB Dalyn Dawkins (hamstring) is expected to play against Northern Colorado on Saturday.

Dawkins' hamstring isn't completely healed, but HC Mike Bobo indicated that he still expects the 5-foot-9, 175-pound redshirt junior to play on Saturday. The Rams will need him, too, as they will be breaking in a true freshman quarterback in Collin Hill.

Colorado State true freshman QB Collin Hill will start against Northern Colorado on Saturday.

Third time's a charm? That is what HC Mike Bobo must be hoping here. Nick Stevens started the season-opening loss against Colorado. He proved woefully ineffective in that one and handed the starting reigns over to Georgia transfer Faton Bauta for last weekend's showdown with UTSA. They won that one, but Bauta completed just 6-of-17 passes for 82 yards in the victory. Enter the 6-foot-5, 210-pound Hill for this weekend's in-state dance with Northern Colorado. During his senior season at Dorman High School (South Carolina), he threw for 3,505 yards (58.2% completions) with a 35/11 TD/INT ratio. "I expect him to play well," said Bobo, "I expect us to improve in our passing game and improve offensively."
Sep 15 - 5:21 PM

Colorado State redshirt junior RB Dalyn Dawkins is questionable for Saturday's game against Northern Colorado due to a hamstring injury.

Both Dawkins and Izzie Matthews (ankle) are questionable for Saturday, putting the Rams in something of a tight spot as far as the running back stable. Dawkins has played respectably in both of Colorado State's games this season, rushing for 88 yards on 14 carries in a season-opening loss to Colorado and backing that up with 68 yards rushing on 15 carries in last Saturday's win over UTSA. The 5-foot-9, 175-pounder is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he rushed for 867 yards and two touchdowns. Marvin Kinsey figures to see a fair amount of carries on Saturday given the current banged up state of the position.

Colorado State junior QB Nick Stevens will not start against UTSA on Saturday.

This according to The Coloradoan's Matt Stephens. HC Mike Bobo's arm was twisted here, as Stevens performed so poorly in Friday's blowout loss to Colorado that it forced a reevaluation of the depth chart. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound junior managed to complete just 6-of-20 passes for 31 yards and a pair of interceptions. With Stevens expected to sit for this weekend's showdown with UTSA, Georgia transfer Faton Bauta will earn starting honors for the Rams. Bauta came in for Stevens to complete 6-of-9 passes for 32 yards and a touchdown during the depressing Friday loss. Neither player is worth a gander in terms of fantasy play.
Sep 6 - 3:47 PM

Colorado State junior QB Nick Stevens struggled in Friday's loss to Colorado, completing 6-of-20 passes for 31 yards and two interceptions.

Last season, Stevens threw for 2,679 yards and a 21/12 TD/INT ratio. Perfectly respectable numbers. He failed to reach a level of respectability on Friday. Indeed, the opposite of that. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder averaged a paltry 1.5 YPA and was eventually replaced by Georgia transfer QB Faton Bauta. A home showdown with UTSA shows next on the Rams' schedule as they look to rebound from this 44-7 defeat, this work of aerial sadness.
Sep 2 - 11:44 PM

Colorado State released three-star 2016 JUCO DB Devron Davis from his National Letter of Intent.

An undisclosed family matter relating to his mother forced Davis to ask for the release from his NLI several weeks ago. Said the 6-foot, 210-pounder, "No[w] that my mom has my uncle here I am trying to find another school. Because my uncle is here now I am comfortable with all of my options." He said that he has been contacted by UTSA, Baylor, USC and Buffalo (among others) since receiving his release. Davis plans on announcing his fresh landing spot some time later this month.

Colorado State dismissed senior DB Preston Hodges.

Hodges was ruled academically ineligible for the 2016 season and subsequently dismissed from the team. The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder recorded 69 tackles and three forced fumbles in 2014, but his production dipped last season, when he registered just 31 stops in 12 games. He was listed as a backup safety heading into the summer.
Jul 1 - 12:27 PM

Colorado State junior S Justin Sweet was arrested on suspicion of DUI.

He was arrested near the school's campus. Sweet was listed as the school's starting safety heading into spring practice. Head coach Mike Bobo is currently in Georgia working a satellite camp, according beat writer Kelly Lyell. Sweet played on 36 percent of CSU's defensive snaps last season, playing heavily against Fresno State and in the bowl game, and 30 percent the previous year.
Jun 16 - 8:33 AM

Nebraska graduate C Paul Thurston will transfer to Colorado State.

This will be Thurston's fifth year at the college level but never locked down a consistent starting gig. Thurston has served as the Cornhuskers' No. 2 center for multiple seasons, and perhaps he believes a path to the starting gig is available at Colorado State.
May 19 - 9:43 AM

Seahawks signed Colorado State CB DeAndre Elliott.

Elliott (6'1/188) made 33 starts for the Rams, tallying 27 career pass breakups and seven interceptions. Elliott's stock received a jolt at the Combine, where he showed average long speed (4.55) but blew up the vertical (41") and broad (10'5") jumps as well as agility drills. Elliott gave up just one touchdown pass and a 40.5% completion rate on throws into his coverage as a senior. Elliott has plus traits, but he wasn't quite a dominant college player and his speed is concerning. Either way, he's worth a shot.
