Jay Norvell asked about seemingly dirty hit that injured Travis Hunter

Colorado is preparing to be without two-way star Travis Hunter for a few weeks — at least — after he left Saturday’s game following a seemingly dirty hit by Colorado State Rams safety Henry Blackburn.

The hit has become a central talking point from the Buffs’ thrilling come-from-behind win, and Rams head coach Jay Norvell was asked about the seemingly dirty play (h/t Jake Shapiro of Denver Sports):

“I mean, I don’t know. He hit him on the sideline,” Norvell said. “It was hard for me to see over there. I can’t answer that.”

The entire game had plenty of antics, and it began earlier in the week with Norvell’s sunglasses comment toward Deion Sanders, which brought a response from Coach Prime.

After the hit by Blackburn, things escalated, and CU quarterback Shedeur Sanders immediately approached Blackburn and got in his face in anger.

The hit by Blackburn on Hunter suddenly has the Buffs without one of their most important players for the next two weeks against Oregon and USC, and Norvell’s unapologetic comments here are a bit surprising.
