Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert's shoulder injury is a deep bruise that is not serious. I am told by an Oregon team source that the junior "should be good to go."
Herbert went down with an injury after being sacked in the second quarter in Oregon's 55-15 win over Oregon State. NBC Sports Northwest reported a photo of Herbert leaving the Oregon locker room at halftime on a cart. He returned to the sideline in the third quarter wearing street clothes. UO coach Mario Cristobal confirmed after the game that the junior “took a shot.”
Before leaving the game, the junior extended his steak with a touchdown pass to 27 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the nation. Without Herbert, backup Braxton Burmeister played and Oregon’s offense scored 34 points.
A bruise shouldn't keep the quarterback from playing in a bowl game for Oregon. More updates to come.
