Spring Ball Takeaways: New Ducks arrive in Eugene following break

The Oregon Ducks kicked off their second stint of spring football practices on Tuesday afternoon, this time with one fewer position coach and a handful of new players on the roster.

Media members were able to watch as players rolled through from the locker room to the practice field and take attendance of players and make note of the new players. During that time, we were able to note that cornerback Jahlil Florence is still not practicing after undergoing offseason surgery, and cornerback Rodrick Pleasant is also not practicing as he focuses on track and field.

We were also unable to see guys like WR Ryan Pellum, TE A.J. Pugliano, and linebacker Bryce Boettcher, who is with the baseball team currently.

One of the most notable things that we wanted to see at practice was who was going to work with the running backs now that Carlos Locklyn has left Eugene to take a job with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Normally, the RBs work directly in front of media members during special teams drills, but on Tuesday, the team placed them on the far end of the field, about 100 yards away from us.

We were able to identify special teams coordinator Joe Lorig working with the kick returners, but other than that, the other two members of the staff with that group are unable to be identified at this point.

We will talk to head coach Dan Lanning later this morning and try to get more information on the situation.
