    CU wide receiver Paul Richardson suffered a torn knee ligament in practice on Monday and will miss the entire 2012 season.

    Here's the SID release for those who are too sick to click right now:

    BOULDER - University of Colorado junior wide receiver Paul Richardson suffered a torn knee ligament late in Monday’s practice and will be lost to the Buffaloes for the entire 2012 season.

    At best, it’s a minimum six month rehabilitation following surgery, which will be scheduled once swelling subsides. He tore it simply planting and trying to make a turn in a non-contact special teams drill. Since he played as a true freshman in 2010 and as a natural sophomore last fall, Richardson has a redshirt year and his intentions are to use it and come back at full strength in 2013.

    “Obviously, it’s a blow to our team, but it’s a part of the game,” head coach Jon Embree said. “It’s an opportunity for others to step up and try to lessen his loss. I thought at first he just rolled his ankle, and it turned out to be this. It’s a shame because he’s worked real hard and was doing a great job both on and off the field, leading by example and improving on all the things he needed to work on.”

    Richardson was CU’s third leading receiver last year despite missing four games with a sprained knee with 39 receptions for 555 yards and five touchdowns. He set a school record with 284 yards in CU’s 36-33 overtime loss to California, when he also tied the school mark for single game receptions with 11. In just two years at CU, the 6-1, 170-pounder from Gardena, Calif., is already 21st in all-time receiving yards (1,069), 25th all-time in receptions (73) and tied for ninth in touchdown receptions (9).

    “I told him that when I played, a torn ACL was doomsday for a skill position player,” Embree said. “Now, he’ll be able to come back stronger and faster. He’s obviously disappointed, but he is in great spirits about what happened and will make the most of his redshirt year available to him.”

    We really need the freshmen to step up and be ready to play, it looks like.....

    One of these days we're going to catch a break, and it's going to be glorious.....

    Hopefully one of the Texas Trio will step up for us. The 3 of them are all big time play makers, I know one of them is recovering from an ACL tear right now though so we will see how that goes.

    Its gonna be rough at the beginning.

    Well, that sucks. At least he has a redshirt year to fully recover and play two more seasons.

    This may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for P-Rich. If he ends up here a 5th year, he could be an All American. Sucks for the 2012 football season though

    This is true. I just hope he can keep up the positive momentum that he has built. This has to be devestating to him. Get better P-Rich.

    I hate everyone and everything. Couldn't you all just have lied to me for a few months. I'd have shown up in September all like "WOOHOO P-RICH!," and everyone would be all like "dude, we forgot to tell you, he hurt himself back in April, he's done for the year," but I would've been too drunk to notice.

    I just hope we don't get hit with injuries in the WR corp this year..... it would be sadly ironic if we had to spend all season this coming year moving DBs to WR.

    Made this all just leads to 2013 being a perfect storm of epicness for the CU program.

    In some way this is Hawk's fault. I know it is.

    This is why we are bad. Not because we are going to miss P-Rich--we will, but it shouldn't be DOOOOOOOM!--but because we lack any semblance of depth at how many positions? DL? OL? TE? WR? LB? Seriously, we are going to be awful again this year and it was even before this injury. Now it just makes this year even potentially more bad thatn it was going to be.

    I'm going to strangle the WR coach from a few years back.
