Oregon Ducks running back Noah Whittington is expected to miss the remainder of the season according to head coach Dan Lanning.
Whittington suffered a leg injury against Colorado back in Week 4. There was initial optimism that Whittington could come back in a few weeks, but Lanning was asked about Whittington on Wednesday if Whittington is expected to play again this season.
“I don’t think that’s probably gonna be the case, no.”
A big loss for the Ducks as they enter their bye week right before the showdown in Seattle against No. 7 Washington on November 14.
Whittington has been the spell back to Bucky Irving this season. But Whittington has had a great season himself. Averaging over 7 yards a carry and having 20 carries for 146 yards and two touchdowns for the Junior out of Fort Valley, GA.
