Cummings says he will play in Hawaii Bowl


CORVALLIS - Senior slotback Kevin Cummings says that he has been cleared to start practicing Wednesday by the Oregon State training staff, and that he will play in the Hawaii Bowl on Dec. 24.

Kevin Cummings says he has unfinished business to take care of in Hawaii.

"I think that once I get going, I won't blink," Cummings said. "But obviously going into the game and pregame, I'm sure I'll be a little nervous about it. But the doctor says it feels good - and I trust him. I'll be ready to go.

"I'm juiced. Especially with my last game being the Stanford game - definitely not my best game. So I'm excited to get another chance to put a stamp on my Oregon State career."

Cummings has been sidelined with the wrist injury since after the Stanford game.

But the senior was all smiles Monday afternoon, and stoked about the prospect of playing again.

Cummings said he'll be doing all he can ahead of the game against Boise State to be ready.

"I've got some more rehab and stuff to do," Kevin Cummings said. "I'm doing a lot of flexibility (training) just in case I need to catch the ball, or if I fall, (that) I could be able to take that pressure." Recommended Stories
