Oregon O-lineman says he’s done for the year too

As if the season-ending injuries to safety John Boyett wasn’t enough, Oregon got more bad injury news on Monday regarding offensive lineman Carson York.

York left practice on crutches and confirmed to media members that he’s out for the year with a broken right kneecap. York was injured during last Saturday’s game against Fresno State, though he said Monday that he’s not sure if the injury is related to the one he sustained in the 2012 Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin. The senior added that he is set for surgery on Tuesday.

The losses of both Boyett and York can’t be understated. York was a starter along the Ducks’ O-line for a majority of the past three years after redshirting in 2008. This year, he was named to the Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy preseason watch lists.

Boyett was also a mult-year starter at safety and was one of the leaders of the Ducks defense.

    @sea – your comment was totally inappropriate. First of all to cheer for any college player to get injured is just wrong headed. Oregon needs to be at full player strength when they lose games this year so they can’t use a “player injury” reason as an excuse.

    seabronco – I don’t know who you are or where you are but you obviously have no class. To write that about a college player, who is playing the game because he loves to play not because he might go on to the next level (think pro’s) shows how immature your thinking is. Less than 1% of all players will get the opportunity to go up, so they must be playing for the love of the game and possibly an education thanks to a scholarship.

    I only cheer for Ducks and Steelers injuries so it’s ok. Any other team would obviously be inappropriate.

    Man you need medical help!

    Let’s see if I have this right–it’s OK to feel that way but only about certain teams-’bout right? Then it is OK for me to say I like everyone but you and I can despise you for being a total jerk with no class at all! Your Momma must be proud! That kind of thinking has absolutely no place in any sports, not just College! You are not worth the dirt it takes to cover you up!

    nice to see some class here after 1 numbskull celebrates injuries to kids whose team he hates. Wonder what Karma will smack Seabronco…it will.

    Seabronco, do you know the meaning of bufoon?

    The whole point of my comment was to rial up the duck fans, of course I don’t wish or cheer for injuries. My comment did what it was intended to do, very first comment anyone sees in this article is that haha.

    Only one person deserves to be injured on a daily basis, and that is mike vick for what he did to the dogs.

    It’s easy to rile up a Duck fan. Just tell them that their Nike owned team isn’t as good as they think it is.

    Some crazy comments here between seabronco and the USC boy. Well, without giving comments to you both, yes I’ve been a Duck fan for a long time as my daughter attended there during the Bellotti era. So, as for these valuable talented boys; Boyett and York will truly be missed; however, the Duck depth will be tapped – maybe the replacements can’t fill the shoes of seniors, but the momentum for these boys to play for a top ranked team will sail-upward. Watch out USC – your rankings will continue shrink til Nov. 3rd – then where will they be? Guess time will tell.

    Yup. As I said, all you have to do is to tell a Duck fan that their team isn’t quite as good as they think it is and they get instantly defensive.

    I’m truly sorry about the spat of Oregon injuries. As said, it is preferable that the Oregon team be at full strength so when they lose the injury factor can’t be used as an excuse.

    As far a momentum goes Oregon’s Defense is ranked #92 falling from the previous week (#91)

    Fresno State outscored Oregon 19-7 in the 2nd half and Mariota, Barner & Thomas played all 4 quarters.

    In the season opener Arkansas State outscored Oregon 24-7 in the 2nd half and while it’s true that the offense starters were pulled, the majority of Oregon’s defensive starters played the entire game.

    Sorry Oregon, Nike’s and Uncle Phil’s money is not going to buy you a NC or a PAC-12 conference championship.

    At least they don’t have to wear those ugly uniforms anymore.

    For uscatjerseyshore: I’m a newbie to both Football AND this site..

    My question is: the fact that Mariota, Barner and Thomas all played in that game (as you pointed out) they are OFFENSIVE players, right? The points were made by a less than stellar 2nd string Oregon Defensive team.. Kelly pulled the 1st string to permit other players to get game time.. I guess if you’re into statistics that would matter a lot.. but to the Defensive players that were put in (with no threat of a game loss) it must have been wonderful.
