Byron Marshall embodies Oregon's ``Next Man In'' philosophy.

Called upon to take over last weekend against California when De'Anthony Thomas left after the opening kickoff with an ankle injury, Marshall ran for a career-best 130 yards and two touchdowns. He'll be tapped again this Saturday when the No. 2 Ducks (4-0, 1-0) visit Colorado.

Thomas is most likely to sit out against the Buffaloes because of the right ankle sprain he sustained in the 55-16 victory over the Golden Bears. The dynamic running back returned the kickoff 27 yards but slipped on the turf that was slick from a driving rain.

Thomas has been wearing a boot and running backs coach Gary Campbell told reporters earlier this week that the speedy junior's return was ``not going to happen'' against the Buffaloes (2-1, 0-1).
