Oregon’s Williams to leave game
Oregon tight end Brandon Williams has decided to end his college career because on an unspecified chronic condition.
Williams, expected to back up starter David Paulson this season, will remain in Eugene to complete his degree in sociology, the school said.
He caught two passes for 48 yards in 11 games last season. Williams was injured in the spring game, but it was unclear if that was related to his condition.
Williams transferred to the Ducks from Joliet Junior College in Illinois early last year.
