Pittman was injured during a reception near the end zone when an Arizona defender awkwardly fell onto his arm that was used to brace himself. This is the second major injury for Pittman as he suffered a shoulder injury during fall camp and thus was unable to participate for a couple of months.
The six week timeline given by Coach Cristobal places Pittman’s scheduled return date in the middle of December’s bowl preparations. He will for sure miss the upcoming date against Arizona State, Civil War, and the Pac-12 Championship game.
Pittman has posted 14 receptions for 197 yards and two touchdowns as Oregon’s most dynamic receiver. He is ineligible for a redshirt as he has participated in six games, nullifying the four game rule.
Come back soon, Mycah!
