Oregon Ducks WR Josh Huff Goes Down With Knee Injury

The Ducks' emerging sophomore WR Josh Huff went down during Friday's practice with an apparent knee injury suffered while diving for a ball and was seen grabbing his left knee with both hands. When he was helped off the field he was unable to put any weight on his leg. 
There is still no official statement on the severity of or  the exact nature of the injury, but it is never a good sign when there is no contact and a player is injured like that.  
Huff was a true freshman last season and was poised to be the 3rd starter behind the senior Tuinei and Junior Hoffman.  If Huff is indeed out fellow sophomore Nick Cole will take his place.
Huff's absence would be a big blow to Oregon's passing offense, he was going to be their deep threat because of his explosive athleticism.  Last year he showed he was one of the most explosive players in college football, he is a threat to take it all the way anytime he touches the ball.  I know Ducks' fans are all rooting for Mr. Huff right now.
