EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon tight end Pharaoh Brown would rather look to the future than dwell on the past when it comes to the leg injury that sidelined him all of last season.

Brown is focused on making the most of his senior season, scoring on an 11-yard touchdown pass from new Ducks quarterback Dakota Prukop on Saturday in the second quarter of Oregon's 44-26 victory over Virginia.

He says the score felt great and noted it's been a "long time." He finished the game with five catches for 55 yards, including a 21-yard reception

Next up for the Ducks (2-0) is Nebraska on Saturday at Memorial Stadium, Oregon's biggest challenge in the non-conference season. While Brown's contribution will be a key for the Ducks, coach Mark Helfrich is aware of the risk of tasking Brown with too much, too early.
