The UCLA Bruins will be without their starting quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson when they match up against the Oregon Ducks on Saturday.
Confirmed from Mercury News’ Jon Wilner on Twitter, DTR will miss the game against the Ducks.
He is, in fact, unavailable https://t.co/9m39LBPh39— Jon Wilner (@wilnerhotline) November 21, 2020
As noted as well, DTR’s absence now means the Ducks will have faced a backup quarterback in two of their three games this season. They found out they would be facing a backup QB situation versus Stanford to open the season, just hours ahead of the game.
While news broke suspecting DTR’s inavailability earlier this week, it was confirmed just over an hour prior to the contest against Oregon.
The backup quarterback situation is murky for UCLA after Washington-transfer Colson Yankoff transitioned to wide receiver this offseason despite transferring as a quarterback.
That means we’ll have to go off the two-deep depth chart and we’ll expect to see both Chase Griffin and Chase Artopoeus as they’re listed as the ‘OR’ behind DTR.
