The Oregon State football team wrapped up its last contact practice of the week Thursday afternoon. The offense worked out in a slight, but steady, rain. There’s a good chance for bad weather Saturday, so it was good to prepare for the elements.
RB Jacquizz Rodgers (ankle) started practice, but didn’t finish. Coach Mike Riley wanted to rest him. He had a good workout Wednesday, so he’s tapering.
WR James Rodgers (knee) went the distance during the week. He’ll be at full strength for the game. He’ll even return kicks, even though his backup S Jordan Poyer showed some explosiveness last weekend with a 70-yard return.
LB David Pa’aluhi (sick) returned to practice after a day off. Riley said there’s no swine flu going around the team.
WR Geno Munoz (hip) returned to practice this week. He’ll be dressed and be available in a reserve role.
Greyshirt WR Kevin Cummings has been visiting the Beavers the last two days. He’ll be here in January. The rest of the greyshirts are still set to make it into school, yes that includes WR Reggie Dunn (at the moment).
