Dennis Dixon Tops QB Depth Chart

Dennis Dixon will begin spring drills atop the depth chart at quarterback for the Oregon football team, UO coach Mike Bellotti announced Wednesday in a statement released by the athletic department.

Jackie Bates is one of two players, along with end Victor Filipe, who "the Ducks are expected to have back following extensive absences last year." Filipe redshirted the season due to an elbow injury and Bates returns from a suspension due to detrimental conduct.

At least seven players will miss all or part of the 15 practices because of injury, the statement said, including starting offensive tackles Max Unger and Geoff Schwartz, defensive tackles Cole Linehan, Jeremy Gibbs and Simi Toeaina, fullback Jason Turner and receiver Derrick Jones.

Linehan, who had surgery last season to repair a broken foot, underwent a second surgical procedure following the bowl game.


GO DUCKS!
