I ran into CU cornerback Anthony Wright on campus recently and had a brief conversation with him. You might recall that he sat out spring practices after partially tearing an ACL in one knee while jumping over a fence in the offseason.
Wright opted not to have surgery after CU doctors told him the injury could heal and the knee could strengthen with physical therapy and time. He says he’s feeling much better these days and expects to be able to participate fully when fall camp begins Aug. 7 at 5:30 p.m.
Wright has a bright future if he is healthy and will add valuable depth to the secondary this fall is he is able to play. I don’t know that he will be able to beat out guys like Jimmy Smith, Ben Burney, Cha’pelle Brown or Jalil Brown for playing time. But if he can get some experience this year and not miss time because of the injury, he will undoubtedly compete for a starting job in 2010.
