Oregon Ducks Wide Receiver Bralon Addison Tears ACL in Practice


If you are new to the scene when it comes to the University of Oregon and possible injuries, outside of something season ending the school does not say much when it comes to potential injuries to players. Comcast Sportsnet Northwest is reporting that ‘multiple team sources’ are reporting that Wide Receiver Bralon Addison tore his ACL in Practice on Wednesday. Earlier in the afternoon, a report came out from several sources locally in Eugene including from the Oregonian’s Andrew Greif and KEZI’s Eric Elken saying that Oregon Wide Receiver Bralon Addison suffered a non contact left knee injury during Wednesday’s practice. Greif reported that Addison left practice on a cart. Beyond that, it speculation. The Oregon Ducks Football team may be looking for a new comber to step up into the position for the upcoming season. Addison caught the ball 61 times last year for 890 yards of offense and coupled with Wide Receiver Josh Huff were among the best in the Pac-12 Conference. Earlier in practice another Wide Receiver Darren Carrington went down with what appeared was a hand/wrist injury. Oregon can ill afford to lose players during the season let alone before the year even begins. Addison was also a key punt returner last season taking two returns for touchdowns. So Oregon will likely have two positions to replace, at Wide Receiver and also Punt Returner.  The team does of course have several players capable of stepping up including B.J. Kelly, Keanon Lowe and Freshman Devon Allen and Jalen Brown. For more on the Oregon Ducks , the rest of the Pac 12 and any cool tidbits we find along the way follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
