According to Moseley, Bellotti said Costa is doubtful for the Washington game but he wouldn't rule anything out at this point. From what I've heard about Roper recently this doesn't bother me in the slightest. In the one series he ran in last Friday's scrimmage he led the ones on an 80 yard scoring drive. He was 3 for 4 for 61 yards and ran 25 yards in for the touchdown. While, Roper isn't the fastest guy on the field he is has a secret weapon... Chip Kelly. Kelly will make sure that the game plan and the offense work to Roper's strenths, not toward Costa's strengths.
I am happy with whomever makes the field this Saturday. Go Ducks!
