It is a beautiful, 60 degree sunny day here in Pasadena, California where the No. 6 Oregon Ducks held its first padded practice ahead of the Rose Bowl.
As the Ducks arrived, eager to get out onto the practice field, all eyes were on true freshman Mycah Pittman, and more specifically the color jersey he was wearing.
Red = No contact
Green = Normal offensive practice jersey
On Thursday, Oregon Coach Cristobal told reporters in Los Angeles:
We'll get final word here in the next day or two, but all signs point to him being cleared and ready to go. He's been practicing full speed for almost three weeks now. While he was playing, he was playing some high level football for us. I'm excited for him as well, he's worked so hard to get himself out here, be a contributor, and its great to have him back in the lineup. – Mario Cristobal
Walking down to the field, there sporting a No. 4 green jersey was Pittman, wearing just a brace on his right wrist/lower arm.
Good sign for Pittman and the Ducks.
