Arizona State wide receiver N’Keal Harry and quarterback Manny Wilkins were noticeably shaken up after taking big hits against the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday.

In the third quarter, Harry was returning a punt when he was drilled by a defender, landing awkwardly.

He would be seen on the sideline with towel draped over his head while trainers looked at him. According to the Pac-12 broadcast, the wide receiver was dealing with a right thigh issue. Harry would try to go back out and play, but would head back to the sideline. He would play just 13 snaps in the second half.

Before the hit, Harry caught three balls for 62 yards. He also had two yards on the ground. With 62 yards, Harry passed Chris McGaha and Jalen Strong in the record books, accumulating the eighth most career receiving yards in team history.

In the fourth quarter, Wilkins was looking for the deep shot down the field. As he stepped up to throw, two defenders took him down, twisting the quarterback awkwardly as he fell. He would leave the field under his own power but with a noticeable limp.

After getting checked out by trainers, Wilkins went over to the stationary bike to try to loosen up, but ASU would not have another chance on offense as the Sun Devils fell 28-21.

Wilkins completed 12 of his 18 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown. With his performance, Wilkins moved into fifth all-time in ASU history for career passing yards with 7,045, moving ahead of Ryan Kealy.
