Oregon RB De'Anthony Thomas told reporters he is 'ready' and 'hungry' to return to the field for the Ducks' game against UCLA, according The Oregonian.

Thomas has not played since spraining his ankle on the opening kickoff of the team's win over California on September 28. Thomas said he was close to returning against Washington State on Saturday, but decided he should be cautious with the injury and wait until this weekend's contest against the Bruins to return to the field.
