according to NBC Sports

. He suffered the injury before the Rose Bowl last season in preparing to face Florida State in the first round of the College Football Playoff.

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu had his share if injuries with the Oregon Ducks, but came out in his Senior year in 2014 with a bang picking up a key interception against Connor Cook and Michigan State leading to an Oregon win over the Spartans. In 2014 he was eighth in team tackles with sixty three and second in pass breakups with six. He also tallied two interceptions.
