- The Ducks had their first closed practice of the spring yesterday. It was held in Autzen Stadium, and Chip Kelly came away pleased (video after the jump). While there aren't a lot of details, Kelly called the practice "crisp" and said the Ducks haven't had any setbacks this fall.
- Moseley has an update on the health front. Ricky Heimuli was not in the boot as he left the stadium, and Josh Huff was not in pads. Blake Cantu, who is rumored to have retired from the team due to constant injury problems, was not suited up at all.
- Moseley's piece today is on the offensive line. Steve Greatwood has been giving a lot of players a lot of different looks at various positions. While this may sacrifice some continuity, he's getting guys experience all over the place, something that could prove invaluable during the season. But stories like this are getting me more comfortable with the offensive line. They have an early test, but I think they'll be up for it.
- Ken Goe's piece today is on the young corners that are battling to replace Cliff Harris in the opener against LSU. Terrance Mitchell, Troy Hill, and Scott Grady are all very talented, and all bring a little something different to the table. While one may earn the "starting" spot, it probably won't matter much as all three rotate frequently with Anthony Gildon.
- The Oregonian has a feature on Oregon target Brett Bafaro. The fifth ranked player out of the state this year, he has an Oregon offer, but is still holding off on committing to any school.
- Got your tickets to Oregon/LSU? I hope so, because they're the most expensive tickets of the year so far.
After the jump, we have Chip Kelly talking about yesterday's practice, and a video feature on Kenjon Barner. GO DUCKS!
