Oregon State WR James Rodgers is out for Saturday’s game at Washington, coach Mike Riley said Sunday night. Rodgers hurt his left knee during the Arizona game.
He is in a brace and on crutches. The MRI was done late Sunday so there are no results. They are expected back Monday. Here’s the full story on this that ran in Monday’s GT.
If it’s a long-term injury, the Beavers will apply for a medical hardship wavier so he can come back. OSU clarified the percent rule with the NCAA and Rodgers is eligible for the hardship waiver.
TE Brady Camp (back) is expected back this week. C Alex Linnenkohl (ankle) is questionable. He also had a big cut on his forehead.
The Beavers moved back into into the AP poll at No. 24. It’s odd that Arizona dropped to only No. 17 and lost head-to-head with the Beavers.
“I think a lot of people went to bed early,” Riley said.
This is the first time since 2003 the Beavers won the first two games in Pac-10 play. … RB Will Darkins caught his first career pass in the game. … S Suaesi Tuimaunei’s interception was the first of his career.
