Ducks TE Jacob Breeland out for season, LB Dye, S Holland cleared for Washington
Oregon Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal announced Monday morning that tight end Jacob Breeland is out the remainder of the season with a knee injury suffered against Colorado on Friday night.
Breeland, a senior, is tied for the team-lead in receptions with 29 through six games, and his six touchdown receptions are also a team-high. He suffered the knee injury on a sideline hit in the first half against the Buffaloes and did not return. He was seen on crutches on the sideline in the second half. He is the second Ducks tight end who will miss the season, as Cam McCormick was ruled out for the season in September with an ankle injury.
On the positive health side, Cristobal said senior linebacker Troy Dye and sophomore safety Jevon Holland will be ready to play Saturday afternoon when No.12 Oregon visits rival No.25 Washington in Seattle (12:30pm, ABC). The two defenders collided with one another while attempting to make a tackle in the second quarter.
