Saturday September 12th, 2015

Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. is dealing with an index finger injury on his throwing hand, according to an ESPN report.

According the report, Adams expects to play Saturday against No. 5 Michigan State after he was knocked out in the fourth quarter of his Oregon debut on Sept. 5.

Adams, a graduate transfer from Eastern Washington, threw for 246 yards and two touchdowns in a 61–42 win against his former school before a late hit from linebacker John Kreifels forced him to exit. Kreifels was ejected from the game for the hit.

The 22-year-old transferred to Oregon for his final year of eligibility after three seasons at Eastern Washington.
