Kenjon Barner injury: Oregon star to locker room

Jonathan Ferrey

Heisman contender Kenjon Barner has suffered another injury.

Star Oregon Ducks running back Kenjon Barner was helped off the field early against Oregon State with an apparent injury, then taken to the locker room. He appeared to be in great pain, but made it to the sideline under his own power.

Barner showing signs of pain isn't a thing that happens lightly, as earlier in the year he went back into a game with a pretty serious right arm injury.

Ranking No. 12 in the country in yards from scrimmage and No. 6 in rushing yardage, Barner's been a big reason the Ducks still have a chance to win the Pac-12 and even compete for the national title.

The Ducks lead Oregon State, 20-7. Barner has 141 yards with 33 minutes still to go, and has been replaced for the time being by De'Anthony Thomas.
