The Gophers escaped Fort Collins with an overtime win over Colorado State on Saturday, but it may have come with a big price. Left guard Jon Christianson will be out with an injured knee after just coming back from a fractured leg, and senior wide receiver K.J. Maye could miss time after he suffered an apparent rib injury.

Coach Jerry Kill said Maye will have to undergo more tests to determine if he suffered a broken rib. Maye scored the game-tying touchdown with less than a minute to play to force overtime.

Maye has 10 catches in 2 games this season.
