Ducks say they're aware of Carrington off-field incident

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) The Oregon Ducks say they are aware of an off-field incident involving receiver Darren Carrington and are handling it internally.

Offensive coordinator Matt Lubick told reporters following practice Wednesday that the Oct. 30 incident is being handled internally. He did not comment further.

The Oregonian reported that Carrington has been accused of pushing a former student near campus following the Ducks' game against Arizona State. The former student was injured.

Eugene police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin could not confirm an investigation into the matter and would only say that the department has ''no arrests or citations involving Darren Carrington.''

Carrington, a junior, has caught 35 passes for 493 yards and three touchdowns this season.
