Bo Nix will continue to undergo treatment for an injured right foot, which will be evaluated daily ahead of No. 10 Oregon’s trip to Oregon State on Saturday.
Oregon’s starting quarterback played against Utah despite barely physically practicing last week. Nix was 25 of 37 for 287 yards with a touchdown and interception and ran for two yards on his only designed run in Oregon’s 20-17 win over Utah.
“I think it’s evaluated every single day,” Oregon coach Dan Lanning said of Nix’s injury. “We’ll see. We have a great medical staff, they do a good job. Bo understands, playing the game for a long time, he understands the way his body feels. Obviously he was able to go out there on Saturday, but we keep evaluating as we get closer to each game.”
Asked if Nix’s performance combined with potentially improved health and mobility could allow the Ducks (9-2, 7-1 Pac-12) to utilize a more diverse and robust game plan against the Beavers (8-3, 5-3), Lanning was coy.
“Maybe,” he said.
