Tyner leaves practice in boot

Oregon running back Thomas Tyner seen heading back to practice on his crutches and his boot.

Oregon freshman running back Thomas Tyner was carted out of Tuesday's practice shortly before the practice concluded and was taken to the training facilities. Tyner then left Oregon's training facilities with a protective boon on his foot and sporting a pair of crutches and returned to Oregon's practice for the final minutes.

Oregon doesn't normally comment on injuries and Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich wouldn't discuss the situation and only suggested that Tyner was still ok.

"To my knowledge he is 100 percent," said Helfrich post practice Tuesday. "The protective boot business is a good business."

Tyner was a five-star running back as part of the 2013 recruiting class and was the state of Oregon's 2012 6A Player of the Year at Aloha high school.

"There's been a lot of guys in cast and crutches," joked Helfrich after being asked about Tyner being seen during practice in his boot and crutches.

Helfrich acknowledged he participated in practice but wouldn't say any more.

Senior linebacker Boseko Lokombo told post practice that Tyner had a big practice during the scrimmage and was making plays.
