"We have plan A, plan B, and plan C for how we're going to go about this and it's going to depend on our overall health," he said.
As part of the team's policy, Helfrich has not discussed the specifics of the injuries that might put the game format in jeopardy, but assured media that few of the injuries were serious in nature.
"We've had some nicks and dings that obviously you don't want to have, but it's part of life," he said. "Luckily, knock on wood, not too many long term deals. So they're just kind of annoying enough to affect a guys development or 'Hey, I wish I could've had this guy do A, B or C."
As has been the case the last two years, Oregon will once again partner with the armed forces for it's spring game, something Helfrich says is very important not only to the team but also individually.
"My dad played here for a year and he was a Marine and my uncle played here and he was in the Navy. Anything we can do to promote that element is awesome."
