Oregon RB De’Anthony Thomas still unsure of status

Sep 28, 2013; Eugene, OR, USA; Oregon Ducks running back De

Oregon Ducks’ running back De’Anthony Thomas has not played an offensive down since his team’s 59-14 win over Tennessee back in mid-September.

In that game, he ran 13 times for 86 yards and a touchdown, and caught a pass for 28 yards.

In total, Thomas has ran 42 times for 338 yards and 6 touchdowns in three games in 2013.  The once Heisman hopeful running back injured his ankle on the opening kickoff against California September 28th, and hasn’t been back since.

Thomas hopes to be back this week, but won’t be sure of his status for the Ducks’ game against Washington State until Friday.

“I practiced a little bit,” Thomas said, according to the Eugene Register-Guard and Steve Mims. “Getting back out there and trying to continue on what I’ve been doing. It was great to be back out there.”

Oregon is 6-0 on the season, and won their last three games without the injured star back.  Getting him back on the field will undoubtedly be a boost for the high-flying Ducks offense.

“I feel like my body will never be out of shape,” he said. “When I rest my body, I feel like I get better. This is a good rest, and when I come back, I will be stronger.”
