Suspended Colorado Buffaloes players charged with three felonies

There is some major trouble ahead for two members of the Colorado Buffaloes football program.

Last month,  linebacker N.J. Falo and running back Dino Gordon were suspended for allegedly breaking into a dorm to steal prescription drugs, laptops, video games and various electronics.

The two players were immediately suspended indefinitely.

This week, the chances of Falo and Gordon ever returning to the team found themselves facing a serious hurdle.

According to a report from the Denver Post, the two players were charged with second-degree burglary, theft between $2,000 and $5,000, possession of a controlled substance and second-degree trespassing. Three of the charges are felonies.

If Falo and Gordon find themselves convicted of the burglary charge, they will be facing 4-12 years in prison.

With a preliminary hearing sentenced for June 1, we shouldn’t expect to see Falo or Gordon returning to the Buffaloes anytime soon.
