RB woes: Francis departure, Quizz question
"I have some real doubts about playing him," Riley is quoted in the Oregonian on Quizz.
The freshman running back strained his shoulder in the penultimate game of the season and missed the Civil War. Riley's reticence comes from not wanting his star running back to re-injure it and potentially put more rehab time on the plate during the offseason.
The Beavs' No. 3 running back, Jeremy Francis, emerged late in the season, especially as a viable receiving threat coming out of the backfield but Oregon State will be without his services in El Paso.
"He was a good teammate, he worked hard, and everyone is going to miss him," said Riley of Francis, a junior.
Ryan McCants was the Beavs' third leading rusher this season, with 79 carries for 314 yards, behind Quizz (1,253 yards) and his brother James Rodgers (46 carries, 408 yards), the latter who has already been ruled out for the Sun because of a broken collarbone.
