Colorado State down a key player.
Colorado State is finally opening up its season after last week’s game between New Mexico was canceled, and the Rams are getting more bad news as starting wide receiver Dante Wright is out against Fresno State.
The news was unknown and it was announced during the pregame radio broadcast, and there is no clear reason as to why he is out.
We haven't been given any info previously on this, but just learned from pregame radio broadcast that Dante Wright won't be playing tonight for Colorado State. Had heard rumors but nothing definitive until now. #CSURams #MWFB

This puts the Rams in a bad situation as wide receiver Warren Jackson opted out for the season and declared for the NFL Draft, and now the versatile Wright is not suiting up either, plus Ty McCullouch.
Wright was to be the top playmaker on this offense and now the team is down another player. Colorado State is also starting a new quarterback in Temple transfer Todd Centeio.
If you are looking for who will step up for the Rams, look for wide receiver Nate Craig-Myers and tight end Trey McBride. Perhaps the running game will take over for Colorado State vs. Fresno State.
Then add in that the Rams have a new head coach in Steve Addazio who is coming over from Boston College and also a revamped offensive line with multiple transfers following Addazio to Fort Collins.
The Rams are just off to a bad start to the season and they have not even played a game.
