BOULDER - Darrell Scott will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on Thursday and could miss up to three weeks, Colorado coach Dan Hawkins said Wednesday.

"They're just going to clean up some stuff; they're not taking anything out," Hawkins said.

Scott, a 6-foot-1, 225-pound sophomore, has been used sparingly as a running back since first injuring the knee on Sept. 11 at Toledo.

He had 12 first-half carries for 85 yards in that game, but has had only 10 rushes for nine yards and two receptions for 20 yards in the four games since.

He did not play in Game 3 - the Buffs' 24-0 win against Wyoming.

Scott, CU's top signee in 2007, has made his biggest contributions this season as a kick returner, averaging 26.9 yards on 21 returns (48 long).

He ranks second in the Big 12 Conference among kick returners, and his 138.8 all-purpose yards per game leads CU.

In Scott's absence, sophomore Brian Lockridge likely will return kickoffs. Lockridge is not new to that role; his average matches Scott's, although he has returned a dozen fewer kicks.

At running back, CU will have Rodney "Speedy" Stewart, Demetrius Sumler and Lockridge available for Saturday's game at Kansas State (10:30 a.m. MDT, Fox College Sports).
