EUGENE, Ore. - For the better part of the last three weeks, Oregon football fans have been wondering:

Is THIS the week quarterback Justin Herbert will return from injury?

Finally, that answer appears to be yes.

College football insider Brett McMurphy tweeted Thursday that his sources tell him Herbert will start on Saturday against Arizona.

On Wednesday, Coach Willie Taggart said Herbert had an x-ray planned for the following morning, which sounded like it would be his final hurdle to clear.

If McMurphy's tweet is accurate, that x-ray must have come back clean.

Kickoff is 4 p.m. Saturday.
