Oregon freshman wide receiver Mycah Pittman appears to have had surgery after suffering a broken arm injury in the No. 6 Ducks 34-6 win over Arizona. Oregon coach Mario Cristobal confirmed Pittman's injury is a broken arm that has a six-week timeline for return. Cristobal said a bowl game return is possible, because “he’s proven to be a quick healer.” Below is a Instagram post from Pittman's mother.

Pittman could be available for a bowl game, depending on how quickly he heals.

Pittman has posted on Twitter and Instagram, indicating he will be back in 2020:
I’m sorry duck nation, I have so much more In my tank. Just a bump in the road. Keep me in your prayers. God is good all the time.— MJP (@MycahPittman) November 17, 2019
Pittman and quarterback Justin Herbert connected on an 11-yard pass and Pittman came down awkwardly after being tackled. Early indications suggest that Pittman's injury could be a broken wrist.
The freshman was escorted to the sideline and carted to the Oregon locker room and did not return.
Already this season, Pittman rehabbed back from a broken collarbone that caused him to miss the opening four games. In six games, Pittman has 14 receptions for 197 yards and two touchdowns. One of Oregon’s most dynamic receivers, the loss of Pittman is a serious blow to the Ducks and their Pac-12 title goals.
