Oregon Ducks WR Darren Carrington has been ruled ineligible to play in the College Football Playoff National Championship game after failing a drug test and testing positive for marijuana.
Oregon spokespeople confirmed that Carrington did not make the trip to Dallas for the game against the Ohio State Buckeyes. The team wouldn’t address the situation until coach Mark Helfrich appears at Saturday morning’s media day.
Fox Sports reported that an appeal by Oregon already has been heard and denied.
Carrington had more than 100 receiving yards in each of the Ducks’ past two games. He had seven catches for 126 yards with one touchdown in a 51-13 victory over then-No. 8 Arizona in the PAC-12 championship game Dec. 5 and then had seven catches for 165 yards with two TDs in a 59-20 win over No. 3 Florida State in the Rose Bowl.
The Ducks are expected to be without freshman WR Devon Allen, who injured his knee on the opening kickoff of the Rose Bowl. Allen is second on the team in receptions with 41 catches for 684 yards and seven touchdowns. Tight end Pharaoh Brown also has been sidelined for several games with a leg injury.
