BOULDER, Colo. -- University of Colorado safety Brian Iwuh returned to practice Wednesday and was expected to be available Saturday against Kansas State.

Iwuh missed last week's game against Kansas after his stepfather and brother both died from cancer.

Fullback Lawrence Vickers missed practice Wednesday and will not be available Saturday.

Vickers had gone to Houston to be with Iwuh and his family but was detained by police because of unpaid traffic tickets from high school days, coach Gary Barnett said.
