BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Oregon star running back Kenjon Barner has been taken to the locker room after apparently injuring his right hand against California on Saturday night.
Barner left the game for the second-ranked Ducks late in the first quarter holding his hand and grimacing on the sideline before being taken to the locker room.
Barner ran for a school-record 321 yards and scored five touchdowns in last week’s win over Southern California. His 19 rushing TDs on the season are two shy of tying LaMichael James’ single-season school mark. Barner had seven carries for 22 yards before leaving the game.
Byron Marshall replaced Barner and scored on a 3-yard run on his first play after the injury to give Oregon a 14-7 lead.
