Despite some soreness that resulted from a second quarter hit that was chronicled in the ABC/ESPN broadcast, Oregon St. quarterback Sean Mannion still managed to throw for a career high 379 yards to lead the Beavers to a 27-20 win at UCLA Saturday.

But the arm is still bothering Mannion today, and according to head coach Mike Riley, who was breaking from the trend of other Pac-12 coaches from the northwest, as well as some others, who prefer to pretend injuries don't happen, may not throw tomorrow in practice.

At least so far, the soreness isn't considered serious, and Mannion's performance post bruising by the Bruins would seem to support that. As a result, backup quarterback Cody Vaz would fill in.

Oregon St. otherwise appears to have emerged from Saturday's game essentially free of injury.
