Report: Carrington suspended for title game

Oregon wide receiver Darren Carrington will miss the College Football Playoff National Championship game according to a report from Comcast.

According to a report by Aaron Fentress of CSNNW.com, Oregon redshirt freshman wide receiver Darren Carrington will miss the the College Football Playoff National Championship game after failing a drug test. Carrington also did not travel with the team according to the report and the team does have an opportunity to appeal the decision.

On the season, Carrington has racked up 704 yards receiving and four touchdowns on 37 catches. He helped the Ducks to a 39-point victory over defending National Champion Florida State in the Rose Bowl game with a team-high seven-catch, 165-yard performance that included two long touchdowns that broke open the game on back-to-back drives in the third quarter.

Carrington had another monster effort in the Ducks 51-13 victory in the Pac-12 Championship game against Arizona, where he had a team-high seven catches for 126 yards and a touchdown.

The Ducks lost fellow redshirt-freshman and touchdown reception leader Devon Allen on the opening kickoff of against the Seminoles and he also will not play against the Buckeyes, leaving Oregon two playmakers short on the offensive side of the ball for Monday's matchup.
