Updated injury news for Oregon Ducks ahead of BYU game

·2 min read

The injury list was extensive prior to the Eastern Washington game, but in the week leading up to BYU, that list is growing smaller, which means the Ducks are becoming healthier.

The good news is offensive lineman Ryan Walk should see time on the field after missing the second half of the Georgia game and all of the Eastern Washington contest.

Coming off the list is right guard Jackson Powers-Johnson and wide receiver Caleb Chapman. The Ducks will need all the firepower they can muster against the No. 14 Cougars, and it seems as if Oregon’s Justin Flowe dodged a bullet after missing some practice time this week.

While Oregon doesn’t officially release an injury report each week, we took information gleaned from interviews and practice and have put together one of our own. Here is our estimation of what Oregon’s injury report will look like on Saturday.

Status: Questionable

Offensive lineman Steven Jones wasn’t on the practice field the two times this week media was allowed to view.

LB Justin Flowe

Status: Probable

It’s always noticeable when Justin Flowe misses a practice given his history of injuries. He missed Tuesday’s practice but was back by Wednesday.

WR Seven McGee

Status: Probable

Seven McGee was labeled as “dinged up” according to Oregon head coach Dan Lanning, but he has participated in practice so far this week.

Status: Probable

Left guard Ryan Walk missed the Eastern Washington game and missed Tuesday’s practice. But he appeared to fully participate on Wednesday. He hasn’t played since the first half of the Georgia game, and it would be a huge addition to the offensive line if Walk can play at least some of the game with BYU.

RB Jordan James

Status: Questionable

Jordan James sustained an undisclosed injury and didn’t play last week and should be considered questionable for the BYU game. The freshman from Nashville, Tennessee, had seven carries for 17 yards in his college debut two weeks ago.

DL Popo Aumavae

Popo Aumavae sustained a foot injury during the Georgia game and had season-ending surgery a few days later.

DL Sua'ava Poti

Status: Out

The Oregon defensive lineman was seen watching practice in a walking boot for the second straight week.

DL Macael Afaese

Status: Out

Macael Afaese was last seen sporting a walking boot while entering practice in street clothes. He has not been accounted for at practice this week.
