FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -Colorado tight end Kory Sperry will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis of a season-ending torn ligament in his left knee.
School spokesman Zak Gilbert said Sunday it's possible Sperry will apply for a medical redshirt so that he can return to the Rams next season.
It's the fourth straight season Colorado State has lost a key play to a season-ending injury knee injury.
Last year, the Rams lost running back Kyle Bell to an ACL injury during the final week of preseason practice. In 2005, it was safety Ben Stratton who went down with a torn ACL in camp and in '04, linebacker Eric Pauly tore an ACL against Utah late in the season.
At 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds, Sperry has the size, speed and skills that make NFL scouts take notice. He scored three touchdowns against Colorado in the opener.
Sperry was hurt in the first quarter of the Rams' 34-28 loss Saturday to California. He hopped off the field after a 6-yard reception for a first down on CSU's first scoring drive.
``When you lose a guy like Kory, that's a major part of your team,'' coach Sonny Lubick said.
The Rams, who have lost nine straight games, have an open week to regroup, then they have tough games coming up at Houston and TCU.
