EUGENE, Ore. >> LaMichael James ran for 239 yards and a touchdown before he was carted off the field after injurung his right arm, dampening No. 9 Oregon’s 43-15 victory over California on Thursday night.

However, he said afterward that it was not broken.

The nation’s leading rusher went down early in the fourth quarter and trainers stabilized his arm in a sleeve as fans chanted his name. The Ducks (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) were driving for their fourth straight touchdown in the second half against the Golden Bears (3-2, 0-2) when he was injured.

True freshman De’Anthony Thomas caught a pair of touchdown passes and ran for another score for the Ducks, who have won four straight since a season-opening loss to LSU.

Giorgio Tavecchio made three field goals — including a career-best 54-yarder — for Cal, which led 15-14 at the half but couldn’t sustain its momentum against the country’s top scoring offense.
