Montana Lemonious-Craig “likely” done for season

·1 min read

Second-year freshman wide receiver Montana Lemonious-Craig suffered a lower-body injury during the Buffaloes’ loss to UCLA on Saturday and is “likely done for the year,” Karl Dorrell announced Monday.

The 6-foot-2 wideout was CU’s fourth-leading receiver with 10 receptions for 123 yards on the year. His shining moment of the season came against Oregon State when he caught a go-ahead TD late in the game. He also caught three passes for 52 yards against Arizona. Needless to say, he was quickly becoming a top target for Brendon Lewis.

Fortunately for the Buffaloes, they still hold a plethora of young talent at wide receiver. Brenden Rice has led the group but true freshmen Chase Penry, Chris Carpenter and Ty Robinson should now have a bigger role moving forward. Second year freshman La’Vontae Shenault, who recently returned from suspension, is also looking to finish the season strong.
