It appears that injured starting safety Chauncey Gardner Jr. will not be out for an extended period of time.
Gardner, who underwent an MRI on Sunday after injuring his knee in the loss to Michigan on Saturday, is considered questionable for Saturday’s game against Northern Colorado, a source close to the situation told The Sun on Tuesday.
Starting tight end DeAndre Goolsby, who also underwent an MRI on Sunday for an unspecified injury incurred in the Michigan game, is highly doubtful for Saturday’s game.
Gardner did not practice Tuesday, but there is a chance he could return on a limited basis today or later in the week. Goolsby is not expected to practice today. He will be re-evaluated later in the week.
