BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders says he's healed from a fracture in his back that led to him missing the final game last season.

The Buffaloes have since revamped their offensive line to keep the pressure off Sanders after he was sacked 52 times in 2023.

Sanders is coming off a season in which he threw for a school-record 3,230 yards. He and the Buffaloes have lofty expectations this fall as the team makes the switch from the Pac-12 Conference to the Big 12.

Sanders very well could be the first quarterback taken in the 2025 NFL draft.
