LaMichael James Injury Makes USC-Oregon Even Worse For Ducks

The Oregon Ducks tend to linger for a while before punching the gas, but not usually quite like this. The USC Trojans lead, 21-7, and that might not be the worst of it. LaMichael James appeared to re-injure his dislocated elbow late in the second quarter, taking a shot and fumbling the ball away in the red zone.

James stayed on the ground for a moment, clearly in pain, before heading to the sideline. It's hard to say exactly how badly he's hurt, since everybody's in the locker room right now anyway, but we'll keep our eyes peeled.

The drive, which appeared set to close Oregon's deficit, was halted by a USC defender straddling James to try and kill some clock, which had Chip Kelly hoppin' mad. Lane Kiffin's turn was next, as De'Anthony Thomas was both bobbling the ball and out of bounds on a touchdown call.
