Devon Allen Out for the Season After ACL Injury
Oregon receiver and Olympic hurdler Devon Allen will miss the rest of the season because of a left knee injury, the team confirmed Monday night.
Allen injured the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during the fourth quarter of Saturday's 35-32 loss at Nebraska. The nature of the injury was first reported by the Duck Territory website.
Allen, who also runs track at Oregon, finished fifth in the 110-meter hurdles last month at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. He became the fourth active college football player in the modern era to compete in track and field at the Olympics.
The team also confirmed that left tackle Tyrell Crosby will miss the rest of the season because of a broken foot.
Allen injured his right knee at the end of his freshman season and required surgery before returning last year.
