TE Lyerla apologizes for making frustration public



EUGENE, Ore. – Oregon coach Mark Helfrich and tight end Colt Lyerla have patched things up after a report that the tight end was upset with how his stomach flu last weekend was described as ”circumstances.”

Lyerla missed Saturday’s 59-14 victory over Tennessee after he had been out for much of the previous week with a virus. As a policy, Oregon coaches don’t discuss injuries.
