News:Josh Huff grabbed five passes for 109 yards and three touchdowns Saturday as Oregon downed California 59-17 on the road in Berkeley.

News:Josh Huff grabbed six catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns Saturday as Oregon outgunned Southern California 62-51 on the road in Los Angeles.
Analysis:Josh Huff has had an impact at wideout at times during his previous two years in Eugene, but never to the extent he did on Saturday against USC, where he posted career single-game bests in receptions, total yardages and trips to the end zone. Unfortunately, given Oregon's heavy-emphasis running the ball, don't expect to see a repeat performance from the junior anytime soon.

Oregon's Huff Catches One Pass In Return To Action
News:Josh Huff (knee) returned to the field Saturday but only caught one pass for 11 yards against Washington State.
Analysis: Look for Josh Huff to do a bit more this Saturday against Washington, but at this point fantasy owners should not expect a lot from him.
News:Josh Huff (knee) has been practicing in full pads and without a brace on his knee all week The Register Guard reports.
Analysis:Josh Huff appears close to returning to action, but still has to be considered questionable heading into this weekend's game against Arizona.
News:Josh Huff (knee) was in uniform but did not play in Saturday's win over Tennesse Tech, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis:Josh Huff appeared to hurt his knee during a kickoff in last week's game. Hopefully he's just getting rest in a game he likely wasn't going to be needed.
News: Now healthy, Oregon receiver Josh Huff is making an impact again. Though he caught only two passes Saturday, Huff turned one of those into a 59-yard scoring play in the third quarter.
Analysis: With Huff and De'Anthony Thomas roaming around, the Ducks are scary fast when they get their hands on the ball. With Huff back and contributing, the Oregon offense has yet another big-play guy in its stable.
News: The Oregon receiving corps, including Lavasier Tuinei, Josh Huff and others have been struggling with drops of late -- two of which led directly to interceptions against Washington.
Analysis: Quarterback Darron Thomas said he still has confidence in his crew and they are working hard to clean that up. The Ducks will need their receivers on their "A" game Saturday against Stanford.
News: Oregon receiver Josh Huff was a factor Saturday in the win over Washington, catching four passes for 60 yards.
Analysis: Huff has battled injury since training camp, but has slowly gotten back into the action the last three weeks. This was his most impressive showing to date as he demonstrated his ability to make people miss and his considerable speed. He's coming back into the fold at 100 percent at a good time for the Ducks.
News: Oregon receiver Josh Huff is starting to make an impact at last. Plagued by a leg injury most of the season, Huff showed his big play potential Saturday with two catches for 72 yards.
Analysis: It is taking Huff a little while to get back into the groove of the Oregon offense, an offense with a shelf full of offensive weapons. Still, he's going to have his days before this season is over.
News: Oregon receiver Josh Huff finally returned to the fold. Huff hadn't played since the opener against LSU, suffering from what was believed to be a lower leg issue. Against California, he had three catches for 54 yards.
Analysis: Huff showed some of that speed and explosiveness that was so evident a year ago. Now nearly healthy, Huff offers the Ducks another big play guy that will drive opponents nuts.
News: Oregon receiver Josh Huff is nearly 100 percent at last and is looking forward to tonight's shot at California. Huff has been struggling with an undisclosed lower leg injury all season, but appears ready to roll at last.
Analysis: Oregon OC Mark Helfrich said that Huff has the ability to be the "most dynamic player" in the Oregon offense, which is certainly saying something. If Huff is truly just about all the way back, he could be a big part of what Oregon does against California.
News: Oregon receiver Josh Huff returned to the lineup Saturday, getting 1 catch for 18 yards. Huff played in the opener against LSU, but had missed the last two games with what is believed to be a lower leg issue.
Analysis: Huff looked good running around the field and showed no apparent remnants of the injury. The Ducks ran the ball all over Arizona, so the receiving numbers were modest for everyone. Look for Huff to have some big games this season as his speed is put to use by the Duck coaches.
News: Oregon receiver Josh Huff is listed at No. 2 behind Rahsaan Vaughn heading into Saturday's showdown with Arizona. After playing and scoring in the season-opener against LSU, Huff has not played the last two games.
Analysis: With coach Chip Kelly notoriously tight-lipped about injuries, it's hard to get a read on where Huff is health-wise. The likely scenario is that Oregon's coaches didn't need Huff to win the last two games and opted to rest him instead. It will be interesting to see how involved he is in Saturay's game plan.
News: Oregon receiver Josh Huff appears to be back from injury and ready to play. That word didn't come from notoriously tight-lipped coach Chip Kelly, but fellow receiver Lavasier Tuinei.
Analysis: Huff has missed the last two games due to some kind of injury, so the odds that essentially three weeks of rest have healed him up would seem to be logical. His speed would be a nice addition to this offense as they face Arizona, a team that habitually puts up points on the Ducks.
News: Word on whether Oregon receiver Josh Huff will play this weekend is elusive. Ducks coach Chip Kelly routinely does not give out injury information, though he admitted that Huff was at practice today and that he did participate. He didn't say Huff practiced, just participated.
Analysis: Kelly's aversion to giving even the most cursory of injury information can be aggravating, however, the idea that the Ducks would need Huff against FCS opponent Missouri State is preposterous. Without anything definitive, the guess here is that Huff will get another week to rest the lower leg injury that he may or may not be dealing with.
News: Oregon receiver Cody Hoffman (head) and starting middle linebacker Michael Clay (leg) left Saturday's game against Nevada due to injury.
Analysis: With Josh Huff (foot), Kenjon Barner (foot) and Hoffman dinged up, look for the versatile DeAnthony Thomas to continue to platoon between receiver and running back in the coming weeks.
News: Oregon receiver Josh Huff did not dress for Saturday's game.
Analysis: There was no indication that Huff would not play this week, we can only assume he aggravated a foot injury from earlier in camp.
News: Outside of Lavasier Tuinei, Oregon coach Chip Kelly was not satisfied with his receiving corps. Kelly called out his young receivers Thursday, saying some of them needed to step up.
Analysis: Kelly said that when the opportunity to make a play arises, the youngsters need to make the play. With a Nevada team that has little resemblance to last year's Nevada team coming to town Saturday, the young receivers -- and Tuinei -- should get some nice opportunities.
News: The great mystery of whether sophomore receiver Josh Huff would play was finally answered. Huff wasn't particularly big in the loss to LSU, but did get a touchdown catch to go with his five catches. Like Lavasier Tuinei, his yardage total (28) was very disappointing.
Analysis: Considering that Huff had a 14-yard catch, the other four catches averaged just over four yards a grab -- not very "big play" like for a guy who was being counted on for big plays -- even against an aggressive LSU defense. Expect more from Huff as the season moves along because the coaching staff certainly will.
News: Coming out of practice Monday, Oregon receiver Josh Huff wasn't sure if he would play in the opener against LSU. Huff missed a good chunk of fall camp with a foot injury and even though he was in pads Monday and has been practicing the last few days, he didn't know if he'd play.
Analysis: "I don't know my status yet," is how Huff described his situation. He did say he's working hard to get back into the mix.
News: Oregon wide receiver Josh Huff practiced today during a closed door session, according to coach Chip Kelly. Huff had been out with a foot injury since Aug. 12.
Analysis: Kelly had been hinting the last couple of days that Huff was headed toward health and it seems he was right on. We'll see how healthy over the next week, but it looks like he's going to be ready to go against LSU.
News: Oregon receiver Josh Huff continues to miss practice time with an ankle/foot injury. Huff was in shoulder pads and shorts for Tuesday's practice, but did nothing more than play a little catch on the sidelines.
Analysis: Coach Chip Kelly said he isn't concerned with Huff missing practice time because the youngster has done a good job of mastering the playbook already. Kelly didn't say that Huff would be ready for the LSU opener, but did say he felt he was moving toward being 100 percent healthy. The next week should tell the tale.
News: An update on Oregon receiver Josh Huff remains the same -- not practicing with a leg injury. Huff sat out Thursday's morning session, the seventh practice he has missed.
Analysis: As usual, coach Chip Kelly is providing little information, but it appears that Huff's foot issue is not some easily remedied ailment. Perhaps it's time to be concerned with Huff's health.
News: Oregon freshman receiver Eric Dungy is running with the second unit and making plays in practice. At a position where injuries and absence are presenting opportunities, Dungy made several big catches during Thursday's morning practice.
Analysis: It doesn't seem possible that Dungy could get regular playing time for the Ducks, but with a lot of receivers getting looks and Josh Huff hurt, Dungy is getting attention and reps from the coaches.
News: Oregon scrimmaged late today, but no press or spectators were allowed into Autzen Stadium. However, wide receiver Josh Huff wasn't in pads as were his teammates, so his injury issues is still in play.
Analysis: Even without Huff, the Ducks have plenty of speed, though he's a semi-proven performer after last year's freshman campaign. At this point, the Ducks want Huff on the field to stretch defenses deep.
News: With Josh Huff's foot hurting, JC transfer Rahsaan Vaughn is running with the Oregon first-team offense. He certainly doesn't look out of place, either.
Analysis: Vaughn simply seems to have too many tools to not become a factor in this offense at some point. The expectation is that Huff will be fine, but Vaughn is certainly pushing hard to get into the rotation. At this point, it looks like he should be.
News: Oregon wide receiver Josh Huff is still in a stablizing boot Saturday morning after suffering a foot injury Thursday. What's interesting is that he missed most of Thursday's workout, but was a full participant Friday.
Analysis: It looks like he may have aggravated the injury Friday. Given that, Huff is being counted on to be that outside playmaker the Ducks love in this offense. His reintroduction to the protective boot is a little concerning. Expect the Ducks to be conservative with Huff from here on to make sure he's healthy for the season's start.
News: Oregon wide receiver Josh Huff sat out most of Thursday's practice after getting banged up. No specifics on the injury and it's likely he'll return quickly. Fellow receiver Rahsaan Vaughn was also on the sidelines with a nick
Analysis: Huff is a presumptive starter for the Ducks and Vaughn is a JUCO all-American, so it's a little worrisome that those two had to take a practice off. Again, it doesn't appear the issues were serious and at this point, expect both to be back quickly.
News: Oregon coach Chip Kelly said that sophomore wide receiver Josh Huff has made big strides from his freshman campaign. Kelly essentially said that Huff will be one of the replacements for the departed Jeff Maehl and Drew Davis.
Analysis: Kelly mentioned Huff's speed on the outside, as well as his overall development, as keys to his being one of the missing pieces this year. Now, said Kelly, he needs to find a couple other receiving pieces. Huff, though, could really have a big year as a definite starter.
News: Is Oregon WR/RB Josh Huff about to be a breakout star? The Oregonian is looking for breakout players from Oregon and Oregon state and Huff is the first player mentioned. Huff had 19 catches and three scores a year ago as a frosh, but will be asked to step into the shoes of Jeff Maehl this season.
Analysis: A year ago, Huff was a nice little extra as a receiver and reverse runner. This year, he must step in and be a consistent producer for the Ducks. He's certainly got big play ability in abundance, so if he's able to even closely step in for Maehl, he could have a terrific year.
News: Oregon QB Darron Thomas knows that receiving corps will be young this year. However, as the summer workouts wind down, several youngsters already in town are making an impression -- freshman Devon Blackmon, Tacoi Sumler and older players Lavasier Tuinei, Keenan Lowe, Josh Huff and others.
Analysis: With Jeff Maehl and D. J. Davis gone, the Ducks will have some new faces racing all over the field. One thing is for sure, the Ducks will have plenty of speed and ability, even in the young guns. Blackmon and Sumler were high school all-Americans and have been extremely tough to handle this summer.
News: Now that Jeff Maehl and D.J. Davis have moved on from Eugene, the Ducks need the youth movement to step up and establish themselves as viable targets for Darron Thomas. Josh Huff is one six sophomores in receiving corps and he knows that he can do some real damage as the go-to guy. Huff is fully healed from a knee injury suffered during spring ball and is ready to cash in on all his potential.
Analysis: Huff showed flashes of gamebreaking ability as witnessed by an 85-yard touchdown run in the game against Arizona and if he establishes himself as a consistent option for his quarterback, he should stretch the field and demand double teams.
News: Oregon WR Josh Huff is an offensive player ready to break out, according to rival.com writer Matt Hinton, who takes a look at up-and-coming offensive players in a recent piece.
Analysis: Huff showed he's plenty explosive as a freshman, making big plays and continually finding ways to make Oregon's offense more explosive. He got dinged up a bit in the spring, but should be 100 percent when fall camp arrives. He could have a big year in the Oregon offense.
News: Huff suffered an injury to his left knee midway through a practice session Friday attempting to adjust to a long pass from quarterback Darron Thomas, The Oregonian reports.
Analysis: One onlooker commented in The Register-Guard that Huff's injury "sure looked like an ACL," but writes The Oregonian's Ken Goe, "It's hard to say how seriously Huff is hurt," adding head coach Chip Kelly "brushed off questions in a post-practice interview session, saying he didn't see the end of the play and hadn't talked to trainers." Huff is one of three starters in Oregon's three-receiver offense, and caught 19 balls for 303 yards and three touchdowns last season.

News: Huff finished both Oregon's third-best rusher (two carries for 28 yards) and third-best receiver (one catch for 57 yards) Saturday as the Ducks downed USC 53-32 on the road in Los Angeles.
Analysis: Head coach Chip Kelly continues to find ways to get the talented freshman from Houston, Texas the ball, but not in a manner in which fantasy owners outside of keeper leagues would take much notice.
News: Huff caught two passes for 37 yards and a touchdown against UCLA Thursday.
Analysis: Huff is a major big-play threat and is worth owning in Pac-10-only leagues, but that's probably all for this year.
News: Huff took five catches for 64 yards and a touchdown Saturday as No. 4 Oregon defeated No. 9 Stanford 52-31 at home in Eugene.
Analysis: Huff finished tied with D.J. Davis for most receiving yards in Saturday's win over Stanford, and continues to intrigue as a first-year receiver in one of the top offenses in the country.
