Lockie starts for Ducks in place of injured Adams

Junior quarterback Jeff Lockie will start in place of Vernon Adams Jr. for No. 12 Oregon against Georgia State, coach Mark Helfrich announced just before game time Saturday.

Helfrich said Adams, who has a broken index finger, is available to play if needed.

Adams, who beat out Lockie to win the job after transferring from Eastern Washington, broke his right index finger against his former team Sept. 5 but played last week in a 31-28 loss at Michigan State.

With Adams limited, Lockie took most of the first-team reps in practice this week, a source told ESPN.

In two years as Marcus Mariota’s backup, Lockie completed 29 of 41 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown. He has not attempted a pass this year.

Adams has completed 41 of 64 passes for 555 yards and three touchdowns with a pair of interceptions in two games as the Ducks’ starter.
