BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado sophomore quarterback Nick Hirschman has suffered another foot injury that will sideline him until the fall.

Hirschman started one game last season and played in five. After undergoing offseason foot surgery, he suffered the same injury, a broken metatarsal bone, to his other foot over the weekend. The school didn't specify which foot was healing and which one he broke recently while walking.

Hirschman left Colorado on Wednesday for his home in Los Gatos, Calif., and will undergo surgery later this week.

His latest injury leaves sophomore Connor Wood, a transfer from Texas, and redshirt freshman John Schrock, who walked on last fall, as the Buffaloes' top two QBs for spring drills beginning Saturday.
