Oregon true freshman wide reciever Mycah Pittman will be out six to eight weeks after suffering a shoulder injury during Saturday's scrimmage.
Pittman was mentioned by many players as being one of the breakout stars of No. 11 Oregon's fall camp leading up to the Aug. 31 season opener against No. 16 Auburn at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
“Mycah suffered a shoulder injury while making a diving catch during Saturday’s scrimmage that will result in him missing the start of the 2019 season," Oregon coach Mario Cristobal said in a school news release. "He is a relentless competitor who will come back stronger and ready to compete this season.”
Pittman is the third Oregon receiver who will miss major playing time at the start of the season. Senior Brenden Schooler, a returning starter and two-time all-Pac-12 Conference special teamer, is out six to eight weeks after having foot surgery. True freshman JR Waters is expected to miss four to six weeks after having foot surgery.
