With Colorado looking to replace both of their starting cornerbacks in 2010, Jimmy Smith and Jalil Brown, sophomore Jered Bell has been viewed as one of the top candidates to replace the talented duo.
Unfortunately, that view has been obscured somewhat by an injury. Whether it’s a short-term or long-term visual impairment remains to be seen.
During the third practice of Jon Embree‘s first summer camp as the Buffs’ head coach, Bell went down with what appeared to be a left knee injury. An MRI was performed Saturday afternoon, although the results are not yet known.
It’s unknown when those results will be made available, although the initial fear as that the injury could be significant.
As a true freshman last year, Bell played in 12 games, starting one. He was the No. 34 corner in the country according to Rivals.com coming out of Ontario, Cali., in 2010.
