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

Tuesday October 29th, 2013

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.
