Darren Carrington, who caught seven passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns in the Ducks’ 59-20 win over the Florida State last week, failed an NCAA drug test and has been declared ineligible, a source told FOX Sports. The rangy wideout was not on the trip to Texas and won’t play in the game.
An appeal by Oregon has already been heard and denied, a source told FOX Sports.
The Ducks were already down Devon Allen, their fastest and most consistent wideout who as FOX Sports first reported after the FSU game will miss the title game due to a leg injury. Oregon also had lost its most experienced wideout, Bralon Addison before the season for the year due to injury.
The news of Carrington being declared ineligible was first reported by CSN.
