Oregon Ducks WR Byron Marshall Likely Out for the Season with Injury

Marshall, one of Oregon’s most explosive offensive threats, left Saturday’s blowout loss to Utah in the second half with what appeared to be a lower leg injury.


Oregon receiver Byron Marshall is “likely” lost for the season after undergoing surgery on Tuesday, according to Aaron Fentress of Comcast Sportsnet Northwest. He was seen minutes later getting on a cart and headed back to the locker room. He is averaging 27.5 yards per return, which leads the Pac-12.

Fentress did note the specifics of Marshall’s injury have not been revealed yet, making it impossible to definitively report whether or not he will return to the field before Oregon’s season ends.

Given the quarterback problems Oregon has had to start this season, Marshall’s production at wide receiver doesn’t look great. The Senior has been a go to Wide Receiver in key spots this season saving drives on third and fourth down. The Ducks have at least four other proven players at the position, including Bralon Addison, Charles Nelson, Devon Allen and Dwayne Stanford. Marshall recorded just nine receptions for 121 yards and two touchdowns this season.
