During Saturday’s loss to the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Oregon wide receiver Devon Allen went down with a non-contact knee injury. It looks like the star receiver and 2016 Olympian could be out for the rest of the 2016 season after the scary injury.
Allen was going to down to cover a punt against Nebraska when he stepped wrong and seemed to twist his leg. He went down and immediately grabbed his left knee.

247Sports is reporting that this injury will keep him out the rest of the season and is likely a torn ACL.
This is the second time Allen has torn his ACL after he suffered the injury during the 2015 Rose Bowl semifinal game against Florida State, which caused him not to be able to play to full strength last season.
“We don’t have any confirmations, which obviously is not a good thing,” head coach Mark Helfrich said in a statement. “We’re going to have to wait until tomorrow [Monday]. We’ve got some preliminary stuff on a few guys, but nothing concrete.”
Allen caught just four passes for 141 yards and a touchdown this year.
