Oregon started the second half with a bang against Cal, rolling off 22 unanswered points in the third quarter. But that high-powered offense may have taken a blow when running back LaMichael James left the game with an apparent arm injury.
James had just come three yards short of scoring a touchdown when he stepped out of bounds to set up 1st and Goal for the Ducks. On the next play, James ran into a wall of Cal defensive lineman at the line of scrimmage and was brought to the ground for no gain. On the way down, James' right arm was bent backwards as he hit in the ground. The 2010 Doak Walker winner immediately began screaming in pain on the ground, and the medical staff immediately requested the air cast for his arm.
LaMichael James entered Thursday as the nation's leading rusher, and had totaled 239 yards on 30 carries before leaving the game with the injury. It should be noted that Oregon will not officially release any details on injuries during or following the game.
