UCLA QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson will miss today’s game against No. 11 ranked Oregon

After UCLA boarded a trip for Eugene on Friday, third-year strategist Dorian Thompson-Robinson tweeted that he was COVID-19 free, but it seems Thompson-Robinson didn’t make the trip to face No. 11 ranked Oregon at 12.30 pm Saturday on ESPN2.

On Saturday morning, Thompson-Robinson tweeted his disappointment.

“I will not get a chance to play Oregon today for reasons I cannot control,” Thompson-Robinson wrote. “Frustrated that I can’t help the team, but they will remain great anyway! #GoBruins. ”

According to several published reports, the Bruins could be without as many as 10 players due to coronavirus protocols.

The Bruins announced on Friday that at least two players and some staff had tested positive for the corona virus. Per Pac-12 contact tracking protocols, anyone who is in close contact with someone who tests positive is placed in a mandatory 14-day quarantine, which appears to be the case for Thompson-Robinson, who jeopardized his status for next week’s home game against Arizona brings. .

It looks like freshman Chase Griffin made the journey and is likely to begin in Thompson-Robinson’s absence.

Griffin took a few snaps in the closing minutes of last week’s 34-10 win over Cal, but tried not to pass.

Griffin had a great high school career, being named the Gatorade Texas Player of the Year in 2018. He was a three-star recruit who threw 4,051 yards and 51 touchdowns in his senior year and threw for more than 10,000 yards in his career.
