Oregon Freshman WR Darren Carrington Suspended For Title Game

It was just earlier this week that Oregon freshman Darren Carrington posted a message to his Instagram account, calling out haters for sleeping on the Ducks' wide receiving corps. Now, via Comcast Sportsnet's Aaron J. Fentress, who cites multiple team sources, we're learning that Carrington won't be part of it come Monday's national championship game.

Carrington has reportedly failed an NCAA-administered drug test and did not make the trip with the team to Arlington, Texas. He reportedly tested positive for marijuana. 

Friday afternoon, Carrington posted an inspirational Reggie White quote to his Instagram account. It's safe to say he'd been given the news beforehand.

Carrington hauled in seven catches for 165 yards and two touchdowns in the Rose Bowl win over Florida State. This is a huge loss for the Ducks.
