08:17 AM ET 11.13 | De'Anthony Thomas may soon find a new way to add highlights to his career reel. With Oregon's defense depleted by injuries, a UO source said Monday that it's possible Thomas will play defensive back when the No. 1 Ducks play host to No. 14 Stanford on Saturday at Autzen Stadium. "I wouldn't be surprised," the UO source said. Oregon's defensive secondary is particularly thin. The latest loss is to junior free safety Avery Patterson, who is out for the remainder of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the Ducks' victory over California on Saturday, according to another UO source. ... Thomas was the nation's No. 1 cornerback prospect two years ago at Los Angeles' Crenshaw High School.

I thought it was their D-Line that was the injury issue... Well, good luck to him.

It will be in this game. Oregon needs to focus on Stanford's O line and Taylor more than worrying about Hogan in his second start passing the ball to their TE's.

Meh...we need contrast. Bama versus Duckies (if healthy) Ying vs Yang Hurry Up vs Slow Down

You do know that Bama's loss was a direct, and I mean direct, result of them beating LSU.A game of that always leaves a headache, I just forgot it this time, till that happened.

Yeah, Saban screwed up not scheduling the FCS creampuff in between. That murderer's row is tough when you haven't seen such back to back all year.

Secondary has taken some hits, too. There's a story about it that way. ------>

I for one do not think that ND has that good a team, they are good and have been very very lucky, but not as great as should be in the NCG IMO. Besides, the togans will take care of that in short order.

Only if they roll it on.

Something different, cool to see some teams playing for it that haven't been in the mix for a long time.
