Oregon defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi listed defensive end Jordan Burch and cornerback Jahlil Florence as game-time decisions for the Fiesta Bowl earlier this week when he met with reporters.

Florence didn’t play in the Pac-12 Championship Game on Dec. 1. Burch started the game but was knocked out of it early on. Against Washington’s trio of talented wide receivers, the combination of a banged up secondary and scarce production from the pass rush ultimately doomed the Ducks. Against Liberty quarterback Kaidon Salter (3,814 yards of total offense, 9.1 yards a play) the Ducks can’t afford more of the same.

“They are involved every day,” Lupoi said, per DuckTerritory’s Matt Prehm. “So it will be game-time decisions. It’s great to see them out there and moving around. So I think they are doing a really good job preparing mentally, not getting all the physical reps, but being out there mentally, having a script in their hand and preparing quarterly.”

According to reports from Glendale, Burch was a full participant in Friday’s practice. Florence, who has not played since Nov. 18, did not practice.

Oregon will already be without starting corner Khyree Jackson (NFL Draft, opt-out), so if Florence can’t go, the Ducks will be leaning on Dontae Manning, Nikko Reed, and freshman Rodrick Pleasant.

“I am excited about these guys’ futures,” said Lupoi, per DuckTerritory. “What it does is pose opportunity for the next man. It’s been great to see these guys attack the preparation. We are just going day to day. That’s the challenge: not having any kind of thoughts on long-term plans. Just getting these guys ready for the game.”

Burch is second on the defense in quarterback pressures so far this season, with 27. He’s one of Oregon’s surest tacklers and was stout against the run this season. With Salter a significant threat with his legs, Burch’s presence could have a huge impact on the game.

Kickoff in the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl is set for 10 a.m. PT on ESPN on Monday.
