Colorado senior quarterback Jordan Webb is ready to go if the Buffs need him. After recovering from a torn ACL in April and serving a one-game suspension, Webb will dress this week for the first time this season.
He will serve as one of the backups for junior Connor Wood. Freshman Sefo Liufau has been No. 2 on the depth chart, but coach Mike MacIntyre said Webb could be his choice if Wood got hurt.
"I'm not definitely sure on that answer, to be honest with you," he said.
Webb, the most experienced quarterback on the roster, was cleared to play a couple of weeks ago.
In the past two weeks, as the Buffs have lost by lopsided scores, MacIntyre said he considered using another quarterback late in the games.
"I thought about it, but I wanted it to be a situation where I felt like everything was in the right situation at the right time," MacIntyre said. "I did think about it, but just decided not to do it."
