Oregon wide receiver Devon Allen to miss season with knee injury

Tuesday September 20th, 2016

Oregon junior wide receiver Devon Allen will miss the remainder of the season after sustaining a left knee injury.

Allen was injured in the fourth quarter of Oregon's 35–32 loss to Nebraska on Saturday.

The team has not specified the injury, but ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports that Allen has an ACL tear. He also sustained a knee injury during the 2014 Rose Bowl win over Florida State.

Oregon's starting left tackle Tyrell Crosby will also miss the rest of the 2016 season because of an injured left foot.

Allen had four catches for 141 yards and one touchdown this season.

Allen is the 2014 and 2016 NCAA champion in the 110-meter hurdles and also finished fifth in the 110-meter hurdles at the Rio Summer Olympics.
