Stanford, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stanford defensive end Ben Gardner's
collegiate career is over, after a torn pectoral muscle will end his season.
Gardner suffered the injury in the third quarter of Saturday's 20-12 victory
at Oregon State, according to the Stanford Daily.
The fifth-year senior and team captain recorded 19 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks
while participating in all eight games for the Cardinal in 2013.
Gardner, at 6-foot-4 and 277 pounds out of Wisconsin, completed his Stanford
career having totaled 106 tackles and 17 1/2 sacks over 34 appearances for the
storied Pac-12 program.
His loss couldn't have come at a worse time for the 7-1 Cardinal, who host
second-ranked Oregon on Nov. 7.
