WATCH: Charles Nelson, Dillon Mitchell back at practice for Oregon

It looks like freshman quarterback Braxton Burmeister will have two valuable options return to his arsenal in the near future.

Per Steve Mims of the  Register Guard, wide receivers Charles Nelson and Dillon Mitchell were back running routes on the practice field on Tuesday.

Nelson is the team’s top receiver despite appearing in just three games this season with 243 yards on 15 catches including a touchdown. Mitchell ranks third in receiving yards on the Ducks’ roster with 220 on 19 grabs.

Neither played in the team’s loss to Washington State last week, where Burmeister was 15-of-27 passing for 145 yards, a touchdown and 2 interceptions in his first start replacing the injured Justin Herbert.

With Nelson and Mitchell both appearing to be en route back to active status, Burmeister should feel more comfortable in the pocket.

Nelson suffered an ankle sprain earlier this season, while Mitchell went down in the win against Cal that saw running back Royce Freeman and Herbert all go down.
