DAT's Status Still Uncertain


Posted Oct 9, 2013


EUGENE - As the Washington-Oregon game quickly approaches, perhaps no single factor is more important in the outcome than the right ankle of De'Anthony Thomas.

EUGENE - As the Washington-Oregon game quickly approaches, perhaps no single factor is more important in the outcome than the right ankle of De'Anthony Thomas.

Thomas said Wednesday that it was "still early in the week," and that no decision on his status for Saturday had been made. He also reiterated that the decision would be his own and one made based upon how close to 100-percent he feels by kickoff.

"In any game you have to feel like your 100-percent to just go out there and perform," he said.

He followed that up by saying he wasn't sure he'd be able to go if he wasn't fully healthy.

Thomas injured his ankle on the opening kickoff of Oregon's win over California nearly two weeks ago, when he made a cut on wet turf that appeared to roll his ankle. Thomas was held out of the Colorado game, but did travel with the team to Boulder.

The junior all-purpose back has been out of the boot and taking part in drills in practice this week.

"I'm not really used to walking around with a boot on. It feels better and I'm trying to get better and be there for my team," Thomas said.

Helfrich said they "aren't close to anything" regarding a decision for Thomas
