Some Sore Beavers Sunday Night

Oregon St.'s Markus Wheaton was knocked out of the Washington game by the Huskies' Sean Parker, but is currently expected to be back for the Arizona St. game. - Otto Greule Jr

Oregon St. head football coach Mike Riley had several sore Beavers to discuss Sunday evening, but the good news is all are expected to play this coming Saturday night, against Arizona St.

Wide Receiver Markus Wheaton was the one most in question, after being knocked out on the field, and threfore out of the game, after a hit by Washington's Sean Parker in the second quarter of the Huskies' 20-17 win. Wheaton is going through the multi-day protocol for checking out those who have exhibited concussion-like symptoms after a traumatic hit, and will continue to do so through the next several days.

But unless something not anticipated and not yet seen comes to light, Wheaton will be back this week.

Corner back Jordan Poyer also suffered a sprained knee against Washington, and won't practice (physically, at least) on Monday. But Riley said he expects Poyer to be ready to go well in advance of Saturday night as well.

Running back Storm Woods is also hampered, and was icing his knee before the game in Seattle was even over. But once again, Riley was of the opinion that with some rest in practice sessions, Woods will be ready for the Sun Devils as well.

Oregon St. also announced that freshman linebacker Chris Miller from Pomona, CA, has been dismissed from the team for an unspecified violation of unspecified team rules. Miller has not played in any games this season.

Update: A Benton county sheriff's report indicates Miller was arrested for criminal trespass, unlawful use of a weapon, and menacing. Miller, who did not accompany the team on the trip to Seattle, was arrested early Saturday morning, after allegedly brandishing a knife during an incident at a fraternity party.
