OREGON STATE WILL face the Huskies on Saturday without their dynamic, multi-threat all purpose…
Oregon State fighting the injury bug
Meanwhile, up front on the offensive line, center Alex Linnenkohl has a re-injured ankle while left guard Grant Johnson (neck) has also been limited this week.
Linnenkohl, a senior, has been extremely durable and reliable for the Beavs -- an NFL prospect, he would be making his 33rd consecutive start for OSU against Washington on Saturday. And Johnson is a key cog on the Beaver line. Riley is hopeful both will participate more in the Thursday and Friday practices and then be good to go by Saturday. But again, as with Wheaton, part of the question also revolves around how close to 100 percent they are by game time.
Also, with Taylor Henry's back issues continuing, DE Dominic Glover has moved into the starting role opposite fellow d-end Gabe Miller.
TE Brady Camp (back) is out, which likely means that John Reese, as well as Colby Prince, will shoulder the tight end responsibilities.
