Barner still in Eugene Hospital
Barner was taken off the playing field by ambulance after a ferocious hit during a kickoff return in the first quarter of Oregon's 43-23 win over Washington State. The redshirt sophomore running back had been knocked unconscious and laid motionless for several minutes until he was able to sit up. He was helped to his feet before sitting on a gurney, loaded into the awaiting ambulance and taken to Pullman Regional Hospital. Family members accompanied the player to the hospital and later on returned to the game and reported his condition to his teammates.
Barner was reported in stable condition on Saturday night and he stayed in the Pullman hospital until Sunday morning when he returned to Eugene accompanied by medical personnel.
Oregon's win propelled the Ducks to the No. 2 ranking in both the AP and Coaches' Poll on Sunday, but for players and coaches, Barner's injury was cause for great concern.
The nature of Barner's injury has not been revealed, but the spokesman said that there was a possibility Barner could be released from the Eugene hospital on Monday afternoon or evening.
