Oregon Ducks fans can now breathe a sigh of relief as quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. has stated he will play in the team’s game against Michigan State in East Lansing on Sept. 12.
Adams’ status for the game was reported on Twitter by John Canzano of The Oregonian and KGW 8, Portland’s NBC affiliate station.

Adams performed excellently in his debut for Oregon, completing 19 of 25 passes for two touchdowns while also adding 94 yards on the ground as the Ducks beat Adams’ former team Eastern Washington 61-42.
In the fourth quarter, he was the victim of a late targeted hit from an Eagles linebacker and got up on shaky legs. Adams sat out the rest of the game, but good news came when coach Mark Helfrich said during his post-game press conference that the graduate transfer quarterback did not suffer a concussion.
Thus, barring any setbacks, it’s looking like Adams will be good to go against the Spartans on Saturday.
Oregon and Michigan State are set to kick off on ABC on the 12th at 8 p.m. ET.
