EUGENE, Ore. — University of Oregon quarterback Nate Costa will be out for the season after surgeons repairing a torn meniscus in his left knee also found a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
The sophomore injured the knee in a drill last week. The team had hoped that Wednesday’s surgery would allow Costa to play part of the season.
Costa also missed last season with a knee injury.
Justin Roper will start for Oregon on Saturday night in its opener against Washington at Autzen Stadium.
