Morning links: Oregon star De’Anthony Thomas to play against UW

From The Oregonian’s John Canzano:

Oregon running back De’Anthony Thomas will play Saturday for the Oregon Ducks against Washington, a UO source has told The Oregonian.

Thomas, who has scored six rushing touchdowns on 42 carries this season, missed the Colorado game last Saturday (ankle sprain). Whether or not Thomas would play for No. 2-ranked Oregon vs. No. 16 Washington has been the subject of much speculation this week. Thomas hasn’t had a rush in nearly a month (vs Tenn. Sept 14).

The Huskies had been preparing all week for Thomas to play.

“We have to anticipate that because he’s such a dynamic playmaker with the ball in his hands, and he can create openings for other guys when he doesn’t have the ball in his hands,” UW coach Steve Sarkisian said Thursday. “We have to prepare for him and deservedly so.”
