09:51 PM ET 11.12 | Ahead of one of Oregon's biggest games of the year, the Ducks have yet another piece of bad injury news. Starting free safety Avery Patterson, last seen crying while entering the tunnel after hurting his knee on Saturday, is done for the year. Right now, five of the eight secondary players on Oregon's offseason two-deep are either injured or mysteriously not playing. And that's in addition to that beaten-up defensive line.

That it was. All the injuries they've had, theyre going to need all the points their offense can get.

Kansas State vs Notre Dame for the Title,, the Ducks wont last the rest of the way, Stanford,, Oregon st,, and if they still got it in em after that,, conference champs game. They are all beat up and running out of gas.

I'm beginning to wonder if there is credence in increased risk of injury in a no-huddle/hurry-up offense like Oregon employs. Not taking anything away from Avery Patterson's season-ending injury, as that really is a shame, but this issue might be worthy of statistical analysis.Now, I also realize that the Ducks' defensive players are the ones hurting the most right now, but if you have a point-a-minute offense that scores quickly, your defense isn't getting much recovery on the sidelines before they have to go back into action. So their chances of getting hurt are compounded, in my opinion.

You are not allowed to suggest something like this. Nick Saban did and everyone on here thought he was crying by suggesting that a fatigued player is more likely to get injured. So please throw away your logic and common sense and just fall in line with the rest of the "experts" on these boards.

I don't like this article, but I do feel sorry for the injured players. "ALL" teams have injuries and this should not be an excuse. Maybe I'm not sympathetic enough, but injuries are part of the game. Don't they think that Stanford has some players that are injured???

LOL, Nick Saban was "crying by suggesting that a fatigued player is more likely to get injured"??? Did you happen to watch Texas A&M's "hurry up offense" against Bama??? I seen a few Bama players hurt or maybe faking injuries on defense.

Rumor has it, Saban sent Lacy back in after looking like he had a concussion... Player Safety is important

I literally sat through a monsoon to watch that game. Which causes Nunes to throw two picks and Golson to fumble twice.

piratey, I agree that it wasn't the best of playing conditions, but why do you always use weather as an excuse?? Stanford played a damn good defensive game in South Bend this year!!!!
