It's looking like after a long, hot week, a weekend is going to be a welcome relief.
After practice, it was announced that sophomore offensive guard Michael Beaton and sophomore defensive tackle Mana Tuivailala have left the team for personal reasons.
Both were second-stringers on the depth chart, so the thin-ness in the middle just got thinner. Beaton, from Dallas, OR, is 6'3" and 292, and would have been in the rotation. Tuivailala, from Seaside, CA, is 6'3", and listed at only 273 lbs., small for the position.
