Oregon Ducks' top WR Bralon Addison tears ACL

Oregon's Pac-12 title run for 2014 just got more challenging.

Wide receiver Bralon Addison likely tore his ACL during a non-contact drill this week, according to a team source, who added the Ducks knew as soon as it happened.

Colleague Bruce Feldman reported Addison's knee injury is indeed an ACL tear.

CSNNW.com first reported the news.

Coming off a seven-touchdown season with nearly 900 receiving yards, Addison was expected to replace Josh Huff as Marcus Mariota's top receiving target. He can still return for 2014 but that's hardly a guarantee coming off an ACL.

The Ducks are probably deeper at running back than receiver, so this is considered a significant blow to Oregon's high-powered offense.
