    Star linebacker lost for the season
    Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse …
    Junior linebacker Doug Rippy, one of the few stars of the much-maligned Colorado defense,*has been lost for the season with torn ligaments in his knee.
    Rippy will undergo season-ending surgery “in the near future,” according to the athletic department.
    Rippy was injured in the second half of Saturday’s loss at Washington.*He is Colorado’s leading tackler this season with 62 tackles and three quarterback sacks.
    Rippy’s cousin Rodney Stewart suffered a severely-sprained knee in the same game. That injury is expected to keep the CU running back out of action between two to four weeks. Stewart is the Buffs’ leading rusher with 473 yards and is the second-leading receiver with 28 catches for 435 yards.*His 1,169 all-purpose yards rank 14th in the NCAA this season.
    CU will also be without wide receiver Kyle Cefalo this Saturday against No. 9 Oregon. Cefalo scored a touchdown against Washington, but suffered a knee sprain late in the game. Cefalo had two catches against Washington, including his first touchdown of the season.
    Any good news?
    Senior linebacker Josh Hartigan, held out of the Washington game, is probable for the Oregon game.
