Oregon senior DE Torrodney Prevot has been suspended indefinitely due to his being investigated for a criminal offense.

According to The Emerald -- Oregon's student newspaper -- a former student has filed a complaint with the police alleging that she was assaulted twice by Prevot this year. This case would explain why the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder was not listed on the depth chart released on Friday. Last season, he recorded 48 tackles (7.5 for loss), 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

Oregon redshirt junior WR Devon Allen returned to the team following his Rio Olympics appearance.

The 6-foot, 190-pounder finished fifth in the 110-meter hurdle final earlier this month in Rio. Oregon opens against FCS sacrificial lamb UC Davis on September 3.

Oregon named senior QB Dakota Prukop the starter for 2016.

Prukop took a little while to acclimate to the Ducks' system after transferring over from Montana State, but he made strides over the summer and began to pull away from Travis Jonsen and Justin Herbert midway through August camp. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound gunslinger threw for 3,025 yards (62.8% completions) with a 28/10 TD/INT ratio with the Bobcats last season. He is also a threat to run, having compiled 797 yards on the ground a year ago. His first game against FBS competition in a Ducks uniform will come when Oregon hosts Virginia on September 10. In terms of fantasy, he should be considered a high-upside sleeper. A smooth transition from FCS to FBS play is by no means guaranteed, but Prukop will have oodles of skill-position talent to work with as he finds his pond wings.

Oregon junior CB Chris Seisay will transfer.

In correspondence with the Oregonian, Seisay said that this was not a matter of playing time. He told the newspaper that he "just wasn't happy." Fair enough. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder's transfer destination is not yet known. Seisay finishes his Oregon career having recorded 48 tackles and an interception. Last August, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that he "looked good in every aspect of the cornerback position, but injury limited Seisay to just two games played during the 2015 campaign.

Oregon redshirt junior WR Darren Carrington suffered a shoulder injury during Saturday's practice.

Carrington hurt his shoulder after tripping into a bench following a made catch during Saturday's practice. His arm was subsequently placed in a sling. The severity of the shoulder injury is not yet known, but HC Mark Helfrich is likely to address the 6-foot-2, 192-pounder's status on Monday.

Oregon redshirt junior WR Devon Allen plans on returning to practice next Tuesday or Wednesday.

Allen finished fifth in the 110-meter hurdles at the Rio Summer Olympics on Tuesday. While he does plan on playing football with the Ducks this season, he understandably wants to take a week or so to rest and refocus. The 6-foot, 190-pounder has yet to take part in August camp due to his Olympics jaunt and said that it was possible he might miss "a couple of games." OC Matt Lubick is not concerned that Allen will have issues adjusting back to football. "We’ve added a few different things," he said, "but he has 4.0, off-the-charts intelligence. We’ll get him up to speed in no time."

Oregon HC Mark Helfrich indicated that he would like to decide on a starting quarterback by August 26.

The Ducks will have seven more practices before that self-imposed August 26 deadline arrives. While Helfrich has yet to decide between senior QB Dakota Prukop and redshirt freshman QB Travis Jonsen, Prukop has begun to distance himself here. Helfrich did note that "it's not some huge chasm between him and everybody else," but multiple reports have Prukop a strong lean to take over in place of the departed Vernon Adams.

Oregon redshirt junior WR Devon Allen finished fifth in the 110-meter hurdle final at the Rio Summer Olympics.

Allen made it to the finals and finished with a time of 13.31 seconds. That wasn't enough for him to medal, but he came darned close, finishing just .07 seconds behind bronze medal winner Dimitri Bascou (France). Omar McLeod of Jamaica and Orlando Ortega of Spain finished first and second, respectively. It remains to be seen what Allen will be doing on the football side of the equation this season. His absence in August camp due to his participation in the Olympics puts him behind the eight-ball in terms of his season-readiness. Oregon kicks off against UC Davis on September 3.

While Oregon HC Mark Helfrich called the team's first scrimmage "inconsistent," he did note that senior QB Dakota Prukop was the most solid of the quarterbacks.

Helfrich wasn't exactly placing a crown atop Prukop's head, but there appears to be serious momentum toward the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder's ascension to a starting role with Oregon as we hit the back half of August camp. On Tuesday, ESPN's Chantel Jennings wrote that Prukop had begun to separate himself from redshirt freshman QB Travis Jonsen. Just what the Ducks have on their hands with Prukop remains to be seen. Their first true test of the season will come in a nationally televised road showdown with Nebraska on September 17.
Aug 17 - 1:00 PM

ESPN's Chantel Jennings relays that Oregon senior QB Dakota Prukop "has started to separate himself this second week [of practice]."

Prukop has been pushed by redshirt freshman QB Travis Jonsen through the spring and summer, but the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder might finally be pulling away in August camp as the Ducks look to settle on a Vernon Adams replacement. QB coach David Yost sees Prukop's overall level of experience (at the FCS level with Montana State) as a crucial factor in this race. Assuming he does win the job eventually, the former FCS-er will be surrounded by loads of skill-position talent and makes for a strong sleeper quarterback option in fantasy drafts. 2009 marked the last year that a healthy Oregon quarterback failed to throw for at least 30 touchdown passes.

Oregon redshirt junior WR Devon Allen qualified for the semifinals of the 110-meter hurdles at the Rio Olympics.

The conditions weren't exactly optimal -- rain led to a wet track and several tumbles on the evening -- but Allen did what he needed to do to advance to Tuesday's semifinals. Running in Heat 4 on Monday, he landed in second place with a time of 13.41 seconds. That's a fair pace off the 13.03 seconds he ran the hurdles in at the US Olympic Trials to qualify for Rio, but we should see him start to ramp things up in the semifinals and (hopefully) the finals.

Oregon senior Torrodney Prevot made the transition from outside linebacker to defensive end in new DC Brady Hoke's 4-3 defense.

Last year, former DC Don Pellum ran a 3-4. "This year we're going to bring a lot more guys from different places," Prevot said. "You'll see a lot more sacks, a lot more (tackles for a loss), a lot more physically with our defensive line and our DBs and linebackers. It's going to be fun." An anonymous Pac-12 coach speaking to Athlon in the spring hinted at Prevot's capacity to help turn around the defense: "Prevot is the one guy coming back who can really make a difference with the pass rush, so it’ll be interesting to see where they put him because he’s kind of a hybrid and has the athleticism to play linebacker."

An NFC West scout says Oregon redshirt junior WR Devon Allen can be an NFL kickoff returner "from Day 1."

Allen didn't play last year after tearing his right ACL returning the opening kickoff against Florida State in the Rose Bowl of the inaugural College Football Playoff. He had just nine catches last year. "This will be a big year for him to show he can add some polish to his game," said NFL Media analyst and former scout Daniel Jeremiah. "But you can see on tape how easily he can just run by people. I think he just needs more reps." Said NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein: "If you're that fast, you're a prospect. Scouts will want to see more and know more because he didn't play much last year." Allen is currently participating in the Olympics as a hurdler.

Oregon and Texas Tech have reached agreement on a home-and-home series for 2023 and 2024.

The Red Raiders will kindly play host in Lubbock on September 9, 2023, with the Ducks set to return the favor in Eugene on September 7, 2024. This should be a fun match-up assuming both teams can keep their high-flying offensive ways rolling over the next seven years. Oregon won contests against Texas Tech in 1991 and 1992 and holds a modest 2-0 lead in the embryonic series.
Aug 2 - 1:59 PM

Oregon redshirt junior WR Devon Allen, who qualified for the 2016 Summer Olympics in the 110-meter hurdles, hasn't decided what his football future holds.

"Our plan right now is go win a gold medal. ... We're doing some team development things, some stuff with football, and he's there every single day," HC Mark Helfrich said. Allen won the 110-meter hurdle event at the U.S. Olympic Trials with a time of 13.03 seconds.
