Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert hasn't interviewed any sports agents yet.

While running through some draft eligible quarterbacks on NFL Countdown, ESPN's Adam Schefter noted that neither Herbert, nor his parents, have interviewed agents and have told agents to hold back. Players headed to the draft obviously interview agents to get guidance throughout the draft process, so this is more evidence that Herbert could be staying for his senior season despite being a candidate for the first overall pick. Until Herbert makes a public decision, these reports are all we can go off. Hopefully a decision is made shortly.

An NFL Draft scout told The Athletic's Dane Brugler that he believes Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert returns to school for his senior season.

The full quote: "They don’t talk about it, but the vibe around that Oregon football palace is he’s staying. We’re treating it like he’s coming out, but my guess, and that’s all it is, I’ll say 70/30 he stays." Brugler lays out the reasons why he should and shouldn't return to school, noting that he's likely to be QB1 on boards but also mentioning that another year in Autzen in the Oregon offense could be beneficial to the 6-foot-6, 235-pound signal-caller. While it does sound like Herbert would come back to school right now, let's keep in mind that we were hearing similar things about Sam Darnold last year at this time. We all know how that turned out, too.

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert (shoulder) suffered a bruised right shoulder against Oregon State, but The Oregonian's James Crepea reports that the injury isn't serious.

The Ducks expect Herbert to play in the team's upcoming (as-yet unscheduled) bowl game. Herbert hit the showers early in Friday's 55-15 win over Oregon State after he was sacked by Shemar Smith and Doug Taumoelau late in the first half. The injury is "not expected to have any lasting implications on Herbert or impact on Oregon's bowl game," Crepea wrote.

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert (shoulder) will be reevaluated in Eugene.

Herbert injured his shoulder taking a sack late in the second quarter of Friday's Civil War showdown with Oregon State. He would not return to the contest. Ducks HC Mario Cristobal had no immediate update on his status following the blowout win. Look for an update on his outlook in the coming days. With Oregon out of contention for the Pac-12 North berth in the conference title game, Herbert will have a month or so to get right before the team's to-be-determined bowl game. It's always possible that he could opt out of the bowl to prep for the NFL Draft -- should he declare -- but one step at a time.

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert (shoulder) will not return to Friday's game at Oregon State due to an apparent right shoulder injury.

Herbert left the game late in the second quarter after being sacked, and he remained in the locker room for further observation through halftime. And about halfway through the third quarter the junior quarterback, considered to be one of the top draft-eligible prospects in college football, rejoined his teammates on the sideline in sweats. Braxton Burmeister will continue to lead the Oregon offense, which has had a big day on the ground, for the rest of this game.

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert (shoulder) remained in the locker room for the start of the second half of Friday's game at Oregon State due to an apparent right shoulder injury.

Herbert took a hard hit late in the second quarter, grabbing his right (throwing) shoulder after the play. This isn't the first time that the junior quarterback has been banged up this season, as he suffered a concussion during Oregon's loss to Arizona earlier this month. Tyler Shough took the final snaps of the first half, and Braxton Burmeister led Oregon's offense to start the second half.

NFL Draft Scout's Steve Fairchild believes that Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert offers "big" upside as an NFL quarterback.

Fairchild gives a nice scouting report on the Oregon gunslinger, noting in his pros that Herbert (6'6/233) has a strong, accurate arm, and when he sits his feet, he delivers a very catchable ball. He does not some negatives, however. "He does not display a lot of throws where he works a progression, rather he locks on to primary throws or half-field reads," Fairchild writes. "His accuracy diminishes when he has to throw off platform or with radical pocket movement." The overall takeaways here are positive, but there are concerns here that suggest that Herbert may not be a sure thing. Not yet, anyway.
Nov 19 - 6:15 PM

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert completed 19-of-34 passes for 262 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 31-29 victory against Arizona State.

Herbert has been solid lately, tossing at least two touchdowns in four straight outings, and nine of his 11 contests overall. He will face Oregon State in the Civil War at Corvallis next Saturday. He threw for 251 yards with three passing scores and a rushing touchdown in last season's 69-10 whipping of the Beavers.
Nov 18 - 2:44 AM

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert completed 20-of-33 passes for 288 yards and three scores in a 32-25 loss to Utah on Saturday.

Herbert's numbers are solid, but they're much more impressive if you consider that the junior quarterback went 0-for-4 on passes in the first quarter. Of course, it's worth pointing out that it's not a good thing to go 0-for-4 in the first quarter. Still, Herbert made some NFL throws, but also made a few passes that suggest another year of college isn't the worst idea in the world. Herbert and the Ducks lose their fourth game of the year, and have an intriguing matchup against Arizona State next Saturday.
Nov 10 - 9:06 PM

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert completed 18-of-32 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-21 win over UCLA.

Herbert (concussion) was able to get cleared before the game, and he had a solid performance against a weak UCLA defense. His first touchdown was an easy one, but in the fourth quarter, Herbert dropped back and threw a ball 50+ yards through the air right into Dillon Mitchell's bread basket for a 67-yard touchdown. Some are skeptical if Herbert will declare ahead of the draft, but most draft analysts predict Herbert going very early, so it would be a surprise if he hung around for his senior season. NFL eyes will be on him next week when the Ducks head to Utah.
Nov 3 - 11:47 PM

NBS Sports' Bri Aramanthus reports Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert is "likely to play" in Saturday's game against UCLA.

Herbert is also reportedly "in uniform and has taken the field in warm-ups, taking snaps from starting center Jake Hanson," according to Aramanthus. This isn't very surprising as Herbert cleared concussion protocol during the week. With Herbert good to go Braxton Burmeister will slide into the backup spot.
Nov 3 - 6:58 PM

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert has cleared concussion protocol ahead of Saturday's game against UCLA.

That said, Ducks HC Mario Cristobal hasn't yet pulled the trigger on officially declaring him the starting quarterback for this Saturday against the Bruins. Herbert, college football's best quarterback prospect, returned to practice Wednesday after sitting out earlier this week following the head injury he sustained against Arizona over the weekend. "It was a good day, but we still evaluate every single piece of it," Cristobal said. "There is always the medical part first, you do it the right way. You do it like it is your own son and make sure the medical part is taken care of. Then after that, you make sure about everything else, how he feels with everything." If Herbert can't ultimately go, Braxton Burmeister will make his first start of the year.

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert (concussion) arrived at Wednesday's practice suited up and ready to go.

"Looks like tests came back with good news," wrote Oregon football beat writer Steve Mims. Herbert (6'6/233) entered the concussion protocol following Saturday's loss against Arizona. If he's indeed a full-go at practice today, that would be a pretty good indication that he'll be able to play on Saturday versus UCLA. Stay tuned.
Oct 31 - 11:53 AM

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert (concussion) did not practice on Tuesday.

Herbert (6'6/233) was placed in the concussion protocol following Saturday's game against Arizona. Just when he sustained the head injury is not quite clear, as he played through the entirety of this past weekend's contest without having to be lifted from action. We'll keep tabs on his progress over the remainder of the practice week. Should he be unable to play on Saturday versus UCLA, the starting task would fall to Braxton Burmeister.
