COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Colorado freshman running back Rodney Stewart broke his right leg in the Buffaloes' 24-17 loss to Texas A&M.

Colorado expected Stewart to miss four to six weeks, the Boulder Daily Camera reported.

The 5-foot-6, 175-pound Stewart was taken down in the second quarter on a horse-collar tackle by A&M linebacker Von Miller. Miller was flagged for a personal foul.

Stewart was the Big 12's fourth-leading rusher, averaging 75.4 yards per game.

He rushed for 166 yards on 28 carries in a win over West Virginia in September, the third-best rushing day for a freshman in school history.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
