Posted September 11, 2012 on AP on Fox
Just two games into the season and No. 4 Oregon has already been dealt a blow with injuries to guard Carson York and free safety John Boyett, both fifth-year senior leaders. York, the team's most-senior offensive player, hurt his right kneecap during Oregon's 42-25 win over Fresno State last weekend. He announced to reporters that he would undergo surgery on Tuesday and that his season was over. Boyett revealed to his hometown newspaper earlier this week that he'll need surgery to repair patellar tendons in both knees. The injury will end Boyett's career with the Ducks unless Oregon successfully petitions the NCAA for an additional year of eligibility.
