Agnew, Andrews A Go

Oregon St. freshman RB Malcolm Agnew, out since suffering a hamstring pull in practice after the season opening game, and sophomore OG Josh Andrews, who has been recovering from a sprained ACL knee injury suffered during the Wisconsin game in week 2, are both "A Go" for this week's BYU game.

Oregon St. coach Mike Riley had been considering seeking a medical redshirt year for Agnew, but Agnew has said he still wants to play this year, and came through a full week of practice in good shape.

Andrews has pronounced himself "100%" physically, needing only repetitions to get his rhythm and technique back up to par.

Neither will start for the Beavers against the Cougars, but both should see action.

With the rotation approach to the running back position Oregon St. has been using, who starts isn't nearly as important as being "ready" depending on the game situations that develop.

Andrews will backup Grant Enger Saturday, and may return to the starting lineup as soon as next week against Washington St., Riley advised.
