The 12th ranked Oregon football team got back to work on Monday morning as the Ducks prepare for their final non-conference game of the regular season against Missouri State.

Linebacker Michael Clay was again on crutches, just like he was with an ice pack on his left ankle in the fourth quarter against Nevada. Defensive End Dion Jordan gave off the tone that Clay would not be ready to go for Saturday.

As for Mike Pereira's statement over the weekend that the Ducks risked being penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct if they flashed the 'O' after scoring a touchdown, the Pac-12 officials consultant and FOX Sports rules analyst backtracked Monday by saying, "As long as it is not prolonged or directed at an opponent, it's ok."

Some of the Ducks we spoke with after practice said they have been told before to cutback on the 'O'.
