Thomas Tyner injury: Oregon RB fine after leaving practice on cart


Tyner was wearing a boot when he left the practice field Tuesday.

Oregon running back Thomas Tyner suffered an injury during Tuesday's practice, according to Jason Quick of the Oregonian. Tyner was taken off on a card and wearing a boot on his left foot.

Tyner, a true freshman, was a major pickup for the Ducks during the 2013 recruiting cycle. Listed at 5'11 and 201 pounds, he was a consensus five-star recruit, the 20th-best player in the country and the No. 1 running back in his class, per 247Composite's rankings. Tyner was named to the Parade All-America first team in 2012, when he rushed for 3,415 yards and 43 touchdowns as a senior at Beaverton, Ore., Aloha High School.

Seeing a prized player taken off on a cart and in a boot is scary, but Oregon fans may be able to rest easy. It appears the Ducks were just being cautious with Tyner.

It was the second piece of medical news of the day for Oregon. Tight end Pharaoh Brown also has a leg injury and will reportedly miss "several weeks."
