Oregon Ducks No. 2 wide receiver Darren Carrington is ineligible for Monday night's College Football Playoff National Championship because of a failed NCAA drug test. Per ESPN:

Comcast SportsNet Northwest, citing multiple team sources, earlier reported that Carrington, a freshman from San Diego, failed an NCAA-administered drug test, testing positive for marijuana. A person with direct knowledge of the test results also told The Associated Press that Carrington tested positive for marijuana.

Ducks spokesman Dave Williford confirmed that Carrington did not make the trip for the championship game, but the team wouldn't address the situation until coach Mark Helfrich appears at Saturday morning's media day. The Ducks arrived in Dallas on Friday night.
Carrington had seven catches for 165 yards and two touchdowns against Florida State in the Rose Bowl.
