As if Saturday night wasn't bad enough...

Saturday's loss against Utah was a Murphy's Law type of game, where everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. That included the moment when Byron Marshall suffered a leg injury returning a kick early in the second half. Marshall, who was in visible pain, had to be carted out of the stadium.

According to Aaron Fentress of CSNNW.com, Marshall underwent surgery on Tuesday and is "most likely" lost for the season. The Oregon wide receiver is not listed on the team's depth chart for this weekend's game against Colorado. A player is usually only removed from the depth chart if he is injured for the entire season. Marshall had started in Oregon's first four games of the season.

This season, Marshall has nine catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Last season, Marshall emerged as Oregon's top wide receiver with 74 catches for 1,003 yards and six touchdowns.

Marshall has also been productive on special teams, leading the Pac-12 with 27.5 yards per kickoff return.

Bralon Addison, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, will replace Marshall on Oregon's depth chart.
