Colorado QB Sefo Liufau suffers ankle injury

If you are wanting to be a collegiate quarterback, it might be of your best interest to avoid attending Colorado. The Buffaloes’ starter Sefo Liufau has had bad luck with injuries and in Saturday’s game against Michigan, he went down with another ankle injury.

In the third quarter of the 45-28 loss to the Wolverines, Liufau landed awkwardly on his right ankle and came up hobbled on the play. However, he did stay in the game to bomb a 70-yard touchdown pass, giving his team their final lead of the game.

Luckily for the Buffaloes, the injury only seems to be a bad sprain and nothing more. This is a scare for the Buffaloes after Liufau’s status was unclear going into the season after suffering a Lisfranc injury last year.

CU QB Sefo Liufau injured with a sprained ankle and will be assessed, per coach Mike MacIntyre.

In Saturday’s game against the Wolverines, Liufau was 16-25 with 246 yards and three touchdowns. He should be back on the field for the team when they take on the Oregon Ducks in Eugene for their PAC-12 opener.
