On Oregon’s final heavy work day in preparation for Saturday night’s visit by Washington State, running back De’Anthony Thomas said he “practiced a little bit” in his continuing recovery from an ankle injury.
Thomas said he was “out there doing little drills and having fun,” and had “come a long way” in his recovery. But he declined to project his status for the game against the Cougars.
“I just want to let it heal well, and not rush to get back out there,” he said.
