Quack Fix: Camp rolls on, De'Anthony's role, and Patterson is 100%

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

As practice rolls along, we're getting a bit more from the coaches and players about what to expect next season. We have a full rundown of all your recent Duck News.

We're in Day 2 of the new Quack Fix format. We'll see if it sticks. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Highlights (from Oregon's official practice reports):

  • Oregon was in shells and focused on drills and some down and distance situations.
  • Devon Allen showed a nice burst in drills to catch a 35-yard TD pass.
  • Both freshmen running backs had impressive runs, with Thomas Tyner getting to the second level in the blink of an eye.
  • Oregon's "Fuji" (hurry-up, two minute situation) drill saw both sides going with as much intensity as possible in pads, and the Ducks got in an impressive number of reps.

Blurb of the Day (from the Oregonian's article on De'Anthony Thomas):

New coach Mark Helfrich says Thomas’ role is "to be determined." Frost said he expects Thomas to be "more of a focal point" this year than last. And running backs coach Gary Campbell said he figures Thomas will "carry the ball more."

"I don’t see him carrying it 30 times,’’ Campbell said. "I’d like to keep it at 20 or under and still have him do the things he does out wide (at receiver).’’

Other Notes:

Avery Patterson is back and 100%. The Register-Guard has a feature on him this morning with the video below.
