Nate Costa's Redshirt Status

Discussion time!

Now that we know Nate Costa is out for the season with a torn ACL (again), I was hoping the good citizens of ATQ could provide some insight on the possibility of an extra redshirt year.

As I understand it, Costa was considered active in his true freshman year due to the fact that he saw game time.  I specifically remember the Portland State game and wondering why Bellotti would waste Costa's redshirt year for mop-up duty in a blowout.  Last year, Costa was using his non-medical redshirt year to preserve eligibility when he suffered his first ACL injury.  It seems to me that since Costa has not used a redshirt for specific medical reasons (such as the recent injury) that he would at least have a chance of gaining an extra year of eligibility.  Or am I incorrect, and is extra eligibility granted only in case of personal or family hardships, such as Sammie Stroughter's situation with OSCC last year?

Let the experts of the Duck world speak!  And huck the fuskies.
