Masoli status still a question


POSTED: Thursday, October 22, 2009

Oregon coach Chip Kelly has yet to say if starting quarterback Jeremiah Masoli (Saint Louis '06) will play this weekend when the 12th-ranked Ducks travel to Seattle to play Washington.

Oregon had a bye last weekend, allowing Masoli more time to recover from a knee injury suffered against Washington State on Oct. 3. He didn't play in an Oregon victory over UCLA the next weekend.

Masoli has practiced all week and wore a knee brace yesterday after not wearing one on Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

On Tuesday, Kelly said in his weekly Pac-10 conference call with the media that Masoli “;looked good today”; but as with all injured players, his status is still day-to-day.

The Ducks are the only remaining undefeated Pac-10 team in league play. Their only loss this year came in the season opener against No. 6 Boise State.
