Costa out 8-10 weeks

Posted by Bob Condotta

Here's the latest on Oregon QB Nate Costa, who will be out 8-10 weeks with damaged cartilage, according to the Eugene Register-guard.

This means Justin Roper will start at QB for Oregon Saturday against the Huskies.

Here's what UW coach Tyrone Willingham said about the Oregon QB situation when asked earlier today at his press conference: "I think the things he (Roper) brings to the table will give us a clearer insight, we can focus on just one guy. Before with them having their quarterback derby a question mark, you're not sure who that starter is going to be. But we think that regardless of who they put in their system, this is a very formidable offense. They have some obvious strengths in the line. Even though they’re missing Jonathan Stewart at running back, I think there are still some very strong runners that they have there, especially with the new junior college transfer that seems to offer a little different dimension. Maybe not quite as fast, but has more of a power element to him. They're going to be very formidable. I think their question mark is just how well their receivers come along, some of the new guys they've got, and how well they can mix them in."
