Oregon freshman T Penei Sewell will miss approximately six weeks with a high ankle sprain.

Ducks HC Mario Cristobal made the announcement Tuesday. Sewell, Oregon's starting left tackle, suffered the injury in Saturday's game against Washington when a defender fell on his leg. Earlier this season, he became the first Oregon freshman offensive lineman to start a season opener since 1997. ESPN ranked the 6-foot-6, 345-pounder as the No. 129 overall player, the No. 6 guard, and the No. 1 prospect out of Utah in the 2018 recruiting class. Oregon shifted starting RT Calvin Throckmorton to the left side following Sewell's injury against the Huskies. Oregon will have to decide if they want to use Throckmorton on the right or left side going forward, and whether they want to roll with backup LT George Moore or backup RT Brady Aiello as a starter for the next month and a half.

Oregon HC Mario Cristobal says sophomore QB Braxton Burmeister (knee) is "expected to be back fully" for Saturday's game at Washington State.

Burmeister (6'1/206) has missed the last four games following minor knee surgery in September. He'll resume his post as Oregon's backup to star QB Justin Herbert.

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang lists Oregon junior C Jake Hanson as a player who improved his stock on Saturday.

Hanson went head-to-head with Washington senior DT Greg Gaines for much of the game -- Gaines himself a future NFL player -- and for the most part, he dominated, as the Oregon offense was able to consistently move the ball against the Washington defense up the middle. "Hanson offers good snap to step quickness - shooting his hands into defenders – and terrific core strength and balance to remain square and maximize torque to create movement," Rang writes. He currently views the 6-foot-4, 297-pound prospect as a Day 2 pick, so there's a real chance we see Hansen drafted before the end of the third round -- assuming he doesn't stick around for his senior season.

Oregon sophomore RB Darrian Felix (foot) is unlikely to play against Washington State on Saturday.

Felix (foot) was dressed for Saturday's overtime victory over Washington, but didn't actually end up playing. This has become CJ Verdell's backfield, but he should see some snaps when he's ready to roll. Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal estimated that is a couple weeks away, which makes his dressing for last week's game a bit odd, but what do we know?
Oct 15 - 8:33 PM

Oregon HC Mario Cristobal is still awaiting word on the status of redshirt junior G Dallas Warmack (stinger) for Saturday's game against Washington State.

Warmack left twice against the Huskies before exiting for a final time in the overtime victory late in the second quarter. The Ducks also lost LT Penei Swell at times during that game, and his status is also up in the air. If Warmack can't go, sophomore Jacob Capra will likely be the starter for the huge game against the Cougars on Saturday.

The Draft Network's Benjamin Solak believes Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert is a "see-first player at this point in his career."

While Solak acknowledges that Herbert is the most talented quarterback in this class, he also has some serious criticism for the quarterback's play including, "He looks far more like a Round 2 than a Round 1 grade from me right now." Solak explains further, "He is a first-read reliant quarterback who will sit on his opening progression and wait for it to get open, breaking the pocket if he decides the opening will never come. He does not like to hit anticipation routes across the middle." Herbert showed both his strengths and weaknesses in Saturday's game against Washington and this will likely be a game many scouts refer back to in their draft evaluations. He gets an easier draw against Washington State next week.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell caught eight passes for 119 yards with a touchdown in a 30-27 overtime victory over Washington on Saturday.

Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert looked Mitchell's way early and often, which should surprise absolutely no one; he's been the junior's top option all year. Even going against two NFL cornerbacks, Mitchell was able to find seams, and he scored an impressive touchdown near the end of the first half. Expect more fireworks from the junior wideout next Saturday against Washington State.
Oct 13 - 7:32 PM

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert completed 18-of-32 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-27 victory over Washington in overtime.

Herbert (6'6/233) had all day to throw, so the completion here is a little disappointing. Still, this was against one of the better secondaries in football, and there were several NFL throws; particularly on a touchdown pass near the end of the second quarter that tied the game at 17-17. He was also fortunate to not be picked off on several throws, so a mixed day. A mixed day that ends with a win against a hated rival, however. Herbert and Oregon get Washington State next.
Oct 13 - 7:27 PM

Oregon redshirt freshman RB CJ Verdell ran for two touchdowns and 111 yards on 29 carries in a 30-27 victory overtime victory over Washington on Saturday.

A terrific game that ends with Oregon doing what they did best and what Washington hasn't done all year: Making a play on third down. Verdell scampered in from six-yards out with the Ducks trailing 27-24 to give Oregon a huge victory and puts them out in front in the Pac-12 race. The freshman tailback has been impressive all year, and it looks like he's going to remain the bell-cow for the foreseeable future. Oregon has another huge game next Saturday against Washington State.
Oct 13 - 7:24 PM

Oregon redshirt junior RG Dallas Warmack is considered to be doubtful to return to Saturday's game against Washington due to an undisclosed injury.

Warmack was shaken up on two separate occasions during the first half, with team trainers taking him to the locker room after the second instance. Oregon's currently down two starters on the offensive line, as LT Penei Sewell was injured late in the second quarter. Sophomore Jacob Capra was listed as Warmack's backup on the team depth chart ahead of Saturday's game.
Oct 13 - 5:49 PM

Oregon freshman LT Penei Sewell is doubtful to return to Saturday's game against Washington due to a right knee injury.

Sewell suffered the injury late in the second quarter when a player fell on his leg, and the freshman was unable to put much weight on his leg while being helped off the field. The freshman has been replaced in the lineup by junior Calvin Throckmorton.

Oregon freshman LT Penei Sewell was helped off the field during the second quarter of Saturday's game against Washington with an apparently right knee injury.

Sewell (6'6/345) wasn't able to put much weight on the leg while being helped off the field. The freshman has been an major contributor at left tackle for Oregon, and should he be sidelined for an extended period of time this would have a noticeable impact on the Duck offense. Junior Calvin Throckmorton replaced the injured Sewell at left tackle.
Oct 13 - 5:18 PM

Oregon redshirt junior DL Drayton Carlberg was ejected from Saturday's game against Washington for targeting.

With the foul having occurred during the first half, Carlberg (6'5/282) will not miss any time when the Ducks visit Washington State October 20. The redshirt junior's ejection leaves Oregon with one less option in its defensive line rotation, as he was listed as Austin Faoliu's backup on the depth chart released ahead of Saturday's game.
Oct 13 - 4:39 PM

Oregon senior RB Tony Brooks-James (undisclosed) is in uniform for Saturday's game against Washington.

Brooks-James being in uniform isn't much of a surprise since HC Mario Cristobal said earlier in the week that he expected the senior to be available. The senior RB's presence means that Oregon will have its top three rushers available Saturday's Pac-12 North showdown, with CJ Verdell and Travis Dye being the yardage leaders.
Oct 13 - 3:16 PM

Oregon sophomore RB Darrian Felix (foot) is dressed in advance of Saturday's game against Washington.

Barring a late setback, Felix should be a go against the Huskies. He'll work in his usual reserve capacity behind Tony Brooks-James and CJ Verdell.
