Nate Landman’s recovery “ahead of schedule,” CU Buffs coach Karl Dorrell says


Nate Landman is apparently tackling rehab with the same juice he uses to bring down opposing tailbacks. CU Buffs football coach Karl Dorrell told the Pac-12 Network on Tuesday morning that Landman, his star middle linebacker, is “ahead of schedule” in his recovery from a rupture to his right Achilles tendon suffered last December in the home finale vs. Utah. “He’s doing really well,” Dorrell said of Landman, who had surgery last Dec. 15. “He’s excited.” While Landman, who elected to return for a fifth season rather than enter the NFL draft, won’t participate in spring drills, Dorrell noted that the 6-foot-3 California native “will be doing some stuff on the side … he’ll be pushing the envelope as much as he can without driving the doctors crazy.” if ( "undefined" !== typeof googletag ) { googletag.cmd.push( function() { googletag.display("div-gpt-ad-Outstream_Video"); } ); } Landman was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection last season after leading CU in tackles (53) and solo stops (39) over five contests. The Buffs are slated to open spring practice March 29. It’ll be the first formal set of spring practices for Dorrell, who was hired in February 2020 but saw his program, and CU athletics as a whole, shut down at this time last year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Dorrell went 4-2 in his inaugural, COVID-shortened season and led the Buffs to the postseason for the first time since 2016, taking home league coach of the year honors in the process. The CU coach also noted Tuesday that the upcoming spring sessions would be “big” for sophomore quarterback Brendon Lewis. The native Texan turned heads with a standout night against Texas in the 2020 Alamo Bowl, coming off the bench to throw for 95 yards and run for 73 more. CU’s starter at signal-caller last fall, graduate Sam Noyer, is also slated to return for 2021, but won’t participate in football drills until late summer, at the earliest, as he recovers from shoulder surgery. ...

Late surge pushes CU Buffs past UCLA on Senior Night


Was there ever a doubt McKinley Wright IV would put on a show for Senior Night? Colorado’s senior point guard put together another memorable performance in a critical showdown for the Buffaloes, leading CU to a 70-61 win against UCLA on Saturday night in a Pac-12 Conference battle at the CU Events Center. In a back-and-forth game, it was the Buffs who dominated down the stretch, putting together a 15-1 run that turned a two-point UCLA lead into a 70-58 led for the Buffs in the final minute. Wright went 10-for-16 and finished with 26 points, six assists, and five rebounds. It was Wright’s top scoring mark of the season and the third-highest of his career. Along the way, he passed Askia Booker for sixth-place on CU’s all-time scoring list. if ( "undefined" !== typeof googletag ) { googletag.cmd.push( function() { googletag.display("div-gpt-ad-Outstream_Video"); } ); } CU (19-7, 13-6 Pac-12) shot .545 in the second half and held UCLA without a field goal for nearly 7 minutes during the latter stages of the second half. Evan Battey went 8-for-9 at the free throw line and recorded 12 points and six rebounds, while Jeriah Horne shook off a slow start to score 10 points, half of which he scored during CU’s late decisive run. The win keeps CU’s slim chances at the Pac-12 regular season championship alive heading into the regular season finale next week against Arizona State.

Addition of Jeriah Horne turning into an all-time pickup for CU Buffs


Jeriah Horne wanted to compete for an NCAA Tournament berth and showcase a little more of his skill set with this final year of eligibility. Colorado had never added a graduate transfer through coach Tad Boyle’s first 10 seasons at CU. Yet the Buffaloes had a void in the frontcourt after losing Tyler Bey to the NBA Draft alongside the graduation of Lucas Siewert. Without Siewert and fellow 2020 senior Shane Gatling, the Buffs also needed to replace two of their top 3-point shooters. Horne has filled those voids and a heck of a lot more this season for the Buffs. The graduate transfer from Tulsa is coming off another standout performance, as his 24 points, on a 6-for-9 night from 3-point range, helped push the Buffs to an 80-62 win on Thursday night against No. 19 USC. For Horne and the Buffs, the win all but cemented the team-wide goal of landing an NCAA Tournament berth. It also clinched a first-round bye at the Pac-12 Conference tournament, as CU no longer can finish lower than fourth. if ( "undefined" !== typeof googletag ) { googletag.cmd.push( function() { googletag.display("div-gpt-ad-Outstream_Video"); } ); } Heading into Saturday’s showdown against league-leading UCLA, Horne is putting together one of the top seasons by any transfer in CU men’s basketball history and certainly will play a key role in the Buffs’ late drive to climb the Pac-12 standings. “When we recruited Jeriah, we watched film of him at Tulsa,” Boyle said. “We talked to people who knew him in Kansas City growing up as a high school player and AAU player. We tried to run as many traps as we could to make sure we knew what we were getting. And we knew we were getting a guy who could make shots and could stretch the defense. Could rebound the ball. “But yeah, has he been better than advertised? I’d say yes. I don’t want to say a pleasant surprise, because we recruit guys with the expectation they’re going to be able to come in and do what they’re supposed ...

NFL Journal: Is Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay worth a restricted free-agent tender?


The March 17 deadline for the Broncos to make a decision on running back/restricted free agent/hometown favorite Phillip Lindsay is closing in. The projected tender prices are $4.766 million (first round), $3.384 million (second round) and all others ($2.133 million), according to Over The Cap. If a team places a first- or second-round tender on a restricted free agent, a new team must relinquish that selection if the old team doesn’t match the player’s offer sheet. There is no compensation for an undrafted player like Lindsay. So what to do with Lindsay, who started his career with seasons of 1,037 and 1,011 yards, but had only 502 during an injury-plagued 2020? My new working theory … if ( "undefined" !== typeof googletag ) { googletag.cmd.push( function() { googletag.display("div-gpt-ad-Outstream_Video"); } ); } The Broncos offer Lindsay an original round tender (he was undrafted) as an act of respect … and also giving both sides a safety net. This wouldn’t guarantee his return. Knowing they have the tender in their pocket, Lindsay’s camp could survey the NFL for a multi-year contract. If they get it, the Broncos can decline to match and wish No. 30 well. If Lindsay finds there isn’t an acceptable market for him, he can sign the Broncos’ one-year tender and try and rebuild his market entering March 2022 unrestricted free agency. From the team’s perspective, Lindsay returning for just this year would provide insurance for a potential Melvin Gordon suspension and not force them to use a Day 3 pick on a running back. The other restricted free agent projections: Second-round tender: Receiver Tim Patrick and inside linebacker Alexander Johnson. if ( "undefined" !== typeof googletag ) { googletag.cmd.push( function() { googletag.display("div-gpt-ad-Cube_Article"); } ); } Patrick (career-high 51 catches-742 yards-six touchdowns last year) is a valuable player, especially because Courtland Sutton is comin...

Staying or going: Predicting what Broncos will do with Shelby Harris, their other nine free agents

crime, law and justice

Their leader in interceptions and defensive snaps last year. A former second-round pick. A versatile defensive lineman who can sack quarterbacks and bat down their passes. And two players who were in their second tour with the franchise. if ( "undefined" !== typeof googletag ) { googletag.cmd.push( function() { googletag.display("div-gpt-ad-Outstream_Video"); } ); } New Broncos general manager George Paton, while canvasing the league for upgrades at multiple positions, also has to make decisions on his 10 unrestricted free agents scheduled to hit the open market March 17. Paton has no connection to any of the players so his decision will be based on input from coaches and scouts and his game-tape evaluations. In case Paton needs assistance, here is a rundown of the free agents and whether they should be re-signed or allowed to walk. Jeremiah Attaochu AAron Ontiveroz, The Denver PostJustin Herbert (10) of the Los Angeles Chargers attempts to slide as Jeremiah Attaochu (97) and Michael Ojemudia (23) of the Denver Broncos make contact during the first half at Sofi Stadium on Sunday, Dec. 27, 2020. Position: Outside linebacker. Age as of Sept. 1: 28. 2020 season: Von Miller’s early September ankle injury created a chance for Attaochu to start, but his season was interrupted by a Week 3 quad issue that allowed Malik Reed to seize a main role. Attaochu played 414 snaps and had 30 tackles, five sacks (fourth on the Broncos) and 14 pass-rush disruptions. if ( "undefined" !== typeof googletag ) { googletag.cmd.push( function() { googletag.display("div-gpt-ad-Cube_Article"); } ); } Staying or going? Newman: Staying. After Attaochu signed with the Broncos in October 2019 following Bradley Chubb’s ACL injury, he’s been a valuable depth addition, and he could see an increased role this year should the Broncos part ways with Miller. O’Halloran: Staying. A tepid projection because if the Broncos keep Miller to team...
