Masoli practices, but won't play, with the Ducks

Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli is participating in spring practice at Oregon even though he won't play a down for the Ducks this fall after his season-long suspension.

Masoli, a Saint Louis (Honolulu) School alum, pleaded guilty March 12 to a misdemeanor burglary charge involving a theft at a campus fraternity house in late January. He was suspended by coach Chip Kelly within hours of his court appearance.

Masoli, touted as a possible Heisman candidate his senior season, is allowed to practice with the team during the suspension.

There has been speculation that Masoli will transfer. But he was present on Tuesday when the Ducks opened spring workouts with Nate Costa taking the initial snaps at quarterback.
