Oregon Ducks quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. is dealing with an injured right index finger, but expects to play in tonight’s nationally televised game against Michigan State. Adams’ injury was reported by ESPN.
All eyes will be on Adams as he also took a scary hit in last weekend’s season opener against Eastern Washington, his former team. Despite that, he has insisted that he will indeed play. Regarding his finger, he has been icing his hand.
Oregon will need a fully functional Adams in order to win tonight. After defeating Michigan State at Autzen Stadium last season, the rematch now takes place in East Lansing. Against a tough Spartans defense, there is no guarantee that the high-scoring Oregon offense will be in top form.
Campus Sports will update Adams’ status in the hours leading up to kickoff and throughout the game.
Kickoff happens on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
