Tyner Injured?

head shot


Former five-star running back Thomas Tyner may or may not have badly injured his left foot in practice a couple days ago.  Tyner was seen on crutches and later was seen wearing a protective boot.  However, coach Helfrich is not so sure the injury is serious.

“To my knowledge, he’s one hundred percent,” Helfrich said.  “The protective boot business is a good business.”

Tyner was the number two ranked prep running back in the nation for 2013.  So far this fall he looked poised to give sophomore Byron Marshall a run for his money in their competition to backup De’Anthony Thomas.

As a senior at Aloha High School, Tyner rushed for 3,415 yards on 300 carries for an 11.4 yard per carry average.  In 2010 he also helped Aloha defeat Oregon football powerhouse Jesuit for the first time in 25 years, winning the state 6A football title in the process.

Is the injury serious?  Will it be a setback in his pursuit to garner solid playing time?  For how long will he be out?

Only time will tell.

    Thomas Tyner was not, has not, and will never be injured. He is invincible.

    If Tyner goes down for awhile, I’m worried about the depth at his position. Thomas isn’t an every down back, and the more he’s used there the more likely he is to get injured as well.
    Add to that the lack of (experienced) QB depth, and the Ducks have some major issues if the #1 guys get dinged up, even for a single game.

    It’s hard to tell with sprained ankles. It depends on the severity of the sprain on whether it takes a few days or a few weeks or even up to a year. (IF Tyner has a sprained ankle)
