Oregon St. head coach Mike Riley said there was nothing serious in the injury report coming out of Saturday's Civil war.

Jordan Poyer had to leave Saturday's game, but subsequently returned. Riley said Poyer would be limited in practice early in the week, but would be available Saturday, for the Nicholls St. game.

Riley also commented he would not ask the Conference to review a play where Poyer appeared to have been stomped on, saying his tape cut off the incident, and he hadn't seen a replay of it.

Limited early in practice, but expected to play Saturday, was also the status Riley assigned to wide receiver Markus Wheaton, who suffered a quad bruise.

The Beavers' other 1,000 yard receiver, Brandin Cooks, is doubtful for practice Monday, due to a knee contusion, but Riley also expects Cooks to be ready to go Saturday.

Safety Peter Ashton, who originally hurt a hip flexor in the California game, aggravated it against Oregon, and is also doubtful for early week practices, but is expected to probably play Saturday, and should be fully recovered before any bowl game.

Riley also said its too early to think about replacing Sean Mannion at quarterback, noting that Cody Vaz is still rehabbing the high ankle sprain he suffered near the end of the Stanford game.
