Andrew Greif tells the story of Zach Okun, who medically retired from the Oregon football team amid concussion and mental health concerns. In the article Okun talks about his anxiety and depression and struggles coping.

WR Bryan Addison, a former UCLA recruit who was granted a full release due to problems with the admissions process, is looking at Oregon. Addison would be an addition to the 2018 recruiting class and is looking for immediate playing time.

Duck Territory speculates which Oregon running back will lead the team this year. The likely candidate is Tony Brooks James, but there is reason to believe that he may not receive a 25 carry a game workload.
