While the Oregon Ducks are cruising early against the Cal Bears — they opened up a 17-0 lead in the first quarter — injuries to two crucial starters could be the lead headlines when the game ends.
Star running back Royce Freeman went to the locker room in the first quarter with an apparent shoulder or arm injury to his right side.
And Royce Freeman's return for the Ducks is questionable. Appeared to be his right shoulder or arm.

Then, as a result of his 7-yard touchdown run, quarterback Justin Herbert’s status is also questionable.
Oregon announces that Justin Herbert (shoulder) is questionable to return. He won't be in for this possession.

Freeman and Herbert have been the unquestioned heartbeat of the offense in 2017, and any extended time without the pair will be a detriment to the Ducks as they look to get their season back on track after losing to Arizona State.
