Oregon has already lost linebacker Troy Dye to the NFL but another contributor from the front seven may also not be in the lineup this season.
Senior Sampson Niu did not participate in Oregon’s first day of training camp on Friday and may miss the 2020 college football season due to an undisclosed personal issue, head coach Mario Cristobal said following Friday’s practice.
“With Sampson there’s some things that he’s been taking care of and he’s a guy, I think we all know we all love him. Very tight and personal with him,” said Cristobal.
