Inside, some notes from following Sunday's Colorado football practice.

• Rumors circulated before Saturday’s loss to Baylor about cornerback Terrence Wheatley’s wrist – indicating the metal plate in his wrist is broken or that one of the screws holding the plate in place has come loose. Sunday, Wheatley declined to talk about the situation. However, he said he’ll be able to play out the remainder of the season with the wrist the way it is. He said he’ll talk about the wrist after the season.

Wheatley had two interceptions against Baylor playing with his wrist in its current condition.

• Center Mark Fenton is no longer wearing a cast on his lower leg and is no longer using crutches to get around. He’ll be able to practice in a limited fashion this week. Though he won’t play Saturday against Texas Tech, Fenton said he still hopes to play as soon as Oct. 21 at Oklahoma. Fenton fractured a bone in his lower leg against Georgia. The injury did not require surgery.

• Safety Ryan Walters was running around at Sunday’s practice and should play Saturday after missing the Baylor game with a stinger injury.

• The team did some conditioning work, then divided into six teams and played “Buff Ball” – a game with few rules that looks something like Ultimate Frisbee with a football.
