'P-Rich' Steps Up Rehab, Eyes Target Date

Paul Richardson has embarked on an intensified five-week rehab regimen that could return the junior receiver to the Colorado lineup before the Buffs get deep into Pac-12 Conference play. The operative word remains "could." As was the case when he began his recovery from ACL surgery on his left knee in mid-April, there still are no guarantees he will play in the 2012 season. This September will mark five months since his ACL surgery, an operation which historically can require six to nine months or longer for full recovery.

Dr. Eric McCarty, the former Buffs linebacker who now is a member of CU's sports medicine team, said Richardson "is doing remarkably well, really shooting past the benchmark (for healing). At the five-month mark we want to see where he is so we can reevaluate and assess . . . see if he's ready.

"We don't know if he'll have all the progress that's required after five months. So we're being very cautious with this; nobody's pushing him but he wants to push and see where he is."
