Kayvon Thibodeaux suffers ankle sprain in season opener for Oregon


One of the top prospects for the 2022 NFL draft has started the 2021 season with an injury.

Oregon edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux suffered a sprained ankle in Saturday’s win over Fresno State. Per James Crepea of the Oregonian, it’s a sprain.

He got rolled up on,” Oregon coach Mario Cristobal said after the game. “Beyond that I know it’s a sprain, which we’re very optimistic that it’s nothing too serious. But as far as as we know X-rays are negative. We’ll assess a little bit later.”

An X-ray won’t show ligament damage. Depending on the severity, Thibodeaux could miss several weeks.

Before leaving, Thibodeaux registered a strip sack. He’s generally regarded as a top-five pick.

    Beware of Oregon edge rushers. They usually don’t pan out in the NFL. Kinda like Ohio State QBs

    Beware of irrelevant historical comparisons

  2. No matter, as long as Cristobal is calling game plans on offense Ducks won’t win a big game. They absolutely have to change QB’s! Thid BC cast off, can’t throw and doesn’t read defenses either/// there’s a reason OSU is a 2 TD fave, it’s NOT just Kayvon!
