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."

First reported by John Canzano. 

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.
