TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -Arizona State quarterback Rudy Carpenter threw in practice Wednesday for the first time since he sprained the thumb on his throwing hand.
Carpenter is expected to play when the sixth-ranked Sun Devils visit No. 4 Oregon on Saturday.
``I thought he threw it real well,'' coach Dennis Erickson said.
Carpenter sprained his thumb handing off to tailback Keegan Herring in ASU's 31-20 victory over California last weekend.
Carpenter wore a glove on his throwing hand in practice so he could grip the ball better. Erickson said he doubted Carpenter would use the glove in Oregon.
``Today he wanted to use it, so that's fine,'' Erickson said.
