Stanford defensive end Ben Gardner out for the season with left pectoral injury

Stanford's defense has been dominant the past two weeks, allowing just 22 combined points in wins over UCLA and Oregon State. But the unit took a big hit on Tuesday. Coach David Shaw announced that defensive end Ben Gardner will miss the remainder of the season with a left pectoral injury, which he suffered in the No. 6 Cardinal's 20-12 win over the Beavers last Saturday.

Gardner, a fifth-year senior, had 7.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks this season.

No injury news comes at a good time, but the loss of Gardner is especially tough given that Stanford's next game is against second-ranked Oregon on Nov. 7. Led by quarterback Marcus Mariota, the Ducks are averaging 55.6 points per game and are coming off a 42-14 victory over the Bruins last Saturday. According to The Bootleg's David Lombardi, the Cardinal will look to senior Blake Lueders (3.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks in 2013) to help fill the void left by Gardner.
