Ducks WR Darren Carrington cited for open container

Oregon Ducks wide receiver can’t seem to catch a break. After missing the College Football Playoff championship game last season due to a failed drug test, which drew him a five-game suspension this season, Carrington was cited for an open container violation on September 26. Andrew Greif of The Oregonian reported the citation.

Carrington, 20, could thus face another obstacle as he prepares to return to the field. The football program is aware of what happened, but has not commented on the situation.

Needless to say, with Byron Marshall expected to miss some time with a leg injury, Oregon could use all the help it can get in the receiving department in order to salvage its season. The Ducks are 2-2 and effectively out of the College Football Playoff conversation, and Carrington could provide a much-needed boost.

The former four-star recruit from San Diego pulled in 39 receptions for 704 yards and four touchdowns last season and with transfer quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. struggling as he plays through a broken finger, Carrington could be the answer to Oregon going on a run to end the season.

Hopefully, he doesn’t face any further discipline over his citation.

Campus Sports will update Carrington’s status if any new information becomes available.
