Updated injury news for Oregon Ducks ahead of WSU game

It’s the fourth week of the college football season and the Oregon Ducks football game head into the Palouse with a relatively healthy team. There are just a few players who are definitely out for the game and a couple of key players are expected to be back and travel to Pullman.

The Cougars are also hopeful of regaining the services of a couple of key defensive players such as corner Chau Smith-Wade and safety Jordan Lee. WSU coach Jake Dickert wouldn’t proclaim those players will be on the field Saturday against the Ducks, however.

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 estimate of what Oregon’s injury report will look like on Saturday.

Flowe was a game-time decision last week and the decision was made to hold him out due to a leg injury. He practiced this week, however, and the chances are good he lines up next to Noah Sewell on Saturday.
