Oregon will be without its biggest offensive threat on Saturday as they travel to Boulder to take on Pac-12 foe Colorado. The Ducks will be very careful with Thomas and see no need to rush him back against a Colorado team that got blown out 44-17 against Oregon State last week. Head coach Mark Helfrich would like to get Thomas healthy for their trip to Washington in two weeks. Thomas will be replaced in the lineup by sophomore Byron Marshall, who ran for a career-high 130 yards and two touchdowns last week.
De'Anthony Thomas out for this week at Colorado. Not shocking.— Aaron J. Fentress (@AaronJFentress) October 1, 2013
De'Anthony Thomas practiced today but not 100 percent. Indications are that he is out for Colorado. pic.twitter.com/4b4QeCvPeg— Aaron J. Fentress (@AaronJFentress) October 1, 2013
