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.Marcus Mariota Ducks Bruins The Bootleg's David Lombardi, Blake Lueders
