STORY: Ducks Looking to Youth in Charles Nelson’s Absence

Through the first three weeks of the season, the Oregon offense appeared to be revitalized under Willie Taggart and had positioned themselves as one of the most explosive units in all of college football. Leading the way from the wideout position was Charles Nelson, the most experienced pass-catcher quarterback Justin Herbert had at his disposal. But following an ankle sprain in Week 3, the Oregon offense looked off against Arizona State, managing just 14 first half points, and totaling only 35 in their first loss of the season. With an increasingly dangerous PAC-12 slate ahead of them, the Ducks are in need of another playmaker stepping into Nelson’s shoes for the coming weeks. Listen below to a full story on Charles Nelson’s absence in the Oregon offense.
