Colorado football injury update: Deion Smith, Trevor Woods expected to play at Washington

Two key pieces for the Colorado Buffaloes, running back Deion Smith and safety Trevor Woods, are healthy and expected to play at Washington on Saturday, per interim head coach Mike Sanford.

Smith has been banged up a couple of times this year, including a scary moment against Cal, and he hasn’t played since Nov. 5 against Oregon. The Buffs’ leading rusher should provide a needed spark in Seattle.

Arguably Colorado’s most exciting defensive player this season, Woods also didn’t face USC after getting banged up the week prior. He remains second on the team with 79 total tackles and has been a strong asset in the Buffs’ young secondary.

In their places against USC, Alex Fontenot returned with 108 rushing yards and Jeremy Mack played an increased role, totaling 11 tackles.
