Late in the first quarter against Fresno State, the crowd at Autzen Stadium let out a collective gasp.
Third-year linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux was being attended to by Ducks' medical personnel for an apparent left foot/ankle injury.
Thibodeaux walked off under his own power before being examined further inside the sideline medical tent. Later, the linebacker exited the tent without a left cleat and with a wrapped-up sock.
Minutes later, Thibodeaux put back on his left cleat with a new tape job before returning to the game.
However, coming out of the locker room after halftime, Thibodeaux was in street clothes with a boot around his left foot.
At the time of the injury, Thibodeaux had been the game's most dominant force with multiple pressures along with a sack and forced fumble.
