Some bad news for the Oregon State Beavers: last season’s leading receiver redshirt junior tight end Noah Togiai will miss the first month of the season, at least, with knee injury.
Injury update isn't promising for the Beavers. Noah Togiai out at least a month (knee). Calvin Tyler Jr., as suspected, out for the season with a knee. David Morris and Jeromy Reichner out 4-6 weeks with foot injuries.— nick daschel (@nickdaschel) August 27, 2018
Togiai injured his knee in a scrimmage on August 23rd and left practice with that knee wrapped. Togiai also missed all of spring practice with an injury. Togiai has 48 career catches for 565 yards and four touchdowns.
Also mentioned in Jonathan Smith’s press conference: sophomore running back Calvin Tyler will miss the entire season with a torn ACL, as Beaver fans feared.
Sophomore safety David Morris, who had a standout year in 2017 (with 75 tackles, four TFLs and an interception) will also be out for about a month, along with newcomer defensive end Jeromy Reichner. Both have foot injuries.
Well, we knew that young players were going to have to step up for the Beavs in order to be successful. It’s just going to happen a lot sooner now. Oregon State opens up the 2018 campaign against Ohio State later this week.
