Quack Fix: Terrell Turner out, recaps of practice #4 and Ricky Heimuli

Man, what an ugly game last night between UConn and Butler. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of quack this morning to help you forget that game.

  • The Ducks had the fourth practice of the spring yesterday and Rob Moseley writes that it was the defense coming out on top and making up for losing Saturday's competition day. Chris Courtney also offers his own practice notes, including highlighting the play of Terrance Mitchell
  • Defensive end Terrell Turner is most likely out for the remainder of spring practices.  With Turner out, the Ducks are essentially practicing with four new starters on the line the line.  Ultimately, the loss of Turner (assuming he'll be ready to go for fall camp) is not too worrying.  His absence will allow for some valuable reps to those lower on the depth chart, which is important given the Ducks used an eight-man rotation on the line last year.  The main beneficiary appears to be redshirt freshman Tony Washington.
  • John Hunt has a feature on sophomore defensive tackle Ricky Heimuli, including a quote by Nick Aliotti comparing him to Haloti Ngata.  Heimuli emerging into an all-conference level DT would be a huge boon to this defense.
  • And, if you're interested, Ken Goe has another story on the Will Lyles situation, focusing on Oregon's recent success in recruiting Texas

Also, after the jump is a video of Chip discussing the most recent practice, as well as videos of Josh Huff and Eric Dungy

Go Ducks!
