Kayvon Thibodeaux left the game today vs Fresno State early. Oregon defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux suffered a left ankle injury during the first half. Though after suffering the injury he did continue to play a little in the first half. On one play in the first half, he went for the tackle and did not seem to have enough power to make the tackle. Thibodeaux was able to walk off the field under his own power after he was tended to by Oregon’s training staff but never returned to the game.
He didn’t immediately rejoin the team on the sideline after halftime. When he did come back onto the field he was wearing a walking boot on his left ankle and was in street clothes. The walking boot is mainly a precautionary thing to strengthen the ankle.
IN THE FIRST HALF
Thibodeaux was a big problem in the first half. He forced a fumble in which the Ducks returned to the 2-yard line.
Oregon coach Mario Cristobal said Thibodeaux got “rolled up on” suffered a sprain, but his X-rays were negative.
Thibodeaux had two tackles including a sack, forced a fumble and set up fellow edge rusher Bradyn Swinson for another sack during the first half.
Oregon will get a big break, the fans can finally relax as they learn that this is just an ankle sprain, and the x-rays have come back negative. He suffered a left foot sprain. Kayvon Thibodeaux will probably take a light load in practice this week. The Ducks did beat Fresno State 31-24, but they have a lot of work to do if they want to beat Ohio State.
