EUGENE, ORE. (AP) - Running back LaMichael James injured his right arm early in the fourth quarter of No. 9 Oregon’s game against California on Thursday night.
Fans at Autzen Stadium chanted his name as the national rushing leader was carted off the field after trainers stabilized the arm in a sleeve.
James, a Heisman Trophy finalist last season, ran for 239 yards and a touchdown before he was hurt. He waved to the crowd as he left the field.
James has run for at least 200 yards in his last three games, something no Ducks player had done before.
He went into the game leading the nation with 153 yards rushing per game. He had 166 by halftime against Cal.
