Jordyn Tyson’s freshman season cut short due to injury

Colorado football interim head coach Mike Sanford revealed on Sunday that true freshman wide receiver Jordyn Tyson suffered a season-ending lower-leg injury in the Buffs’ loss to Oregon over the weekend.

Tyson was one of CU’s few bright spots on offense this season and was recently named both the Pac-12 freshman of the week and special teams player of the week for his two touchdowns and 246 all-purpose yards against Arizona State. He also added another 137 receiving yards and a touchdown against the Ducks before suffering a fourth-quarter injury.

Wide receivers coach Phil McGeoghan summed up the disappointment of losing Tyson:
