Oregon has lost its second starting cornerback to a season-ending knee injury.
Senior Willie Glasper, who replaced senior captain Walter Thurmond in the starting lineup, is done of the year after injuring his knee during Tuesday's practice.
Glasper was hurt in a non-contact drill midway through the workout. An MRI on his right knee revealed the injury was season ending, though Oregon didn't specify the nature of the injury.
Glasper, who stepped into the starting lineup when Thurmond went down on the opening kickoff against California, recorded 11 tackles in five games this season, including 1.5 tackles for loss, and broke up two passes. Seven of those tackles were accumulated in the past two games.
He completes his collegiate career posting 65 tackles, one fumble recovery and one interception.
