Report: Oregon Ducks QB Vernon Adams has index-finger injury

Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams has a chance to shine on a big stage Saturday in a highly anticipated matchup with Michigan State, but he might not be playing at 100 percent.

Adams was knocked out of last week's game game against his former team, Eastern Washington, with a hard hit and ESPN reported Saturday that Adams is also dealing with an index-finger injury on his throwing (right) hand. Adams had been icing his hand and intends to play Saturday, per the report.

Adams transferred to Oregon from EWU before the season and completed 19 of 25 passes for 246 yards and two touchdowns last week in his first career start for the Ducks. He also rushed for 94 yards in the game. He beat out Jeff Lockie for the starting job in a fall-camp competition.
