Oregon State football is still suffering some major injuries, including to a couple of vital play-makers. We don’t totally know who’s in and who’s out of the lineup yet against Nevada. Coach Smith and his staff like to keep quiet on what’s going on with the injury news, but here’s what we DO know (and I throw in my guesses for Saturday’s game).
- Artavis Pierce - Elbow (4 weeks)
- David Morris - Foot (2-3 weeks)
- Jeromy Reichner - Foot (2-3 weeks)
- Noah Togiai - Knee (3-5 weeks)
- Omar Hicks-Onu - Undisclosed injury (unknown)
- Calvin Tyler Jr. - Knee (Out for season)
- Jay Irvine - Shoulder (Out for season)
Artavis Pierce is the big injury news coming out of last week and he will be out for at least a month with his elbow injury. Morris, Reichner and Togiai are all making great strides in their recoveries but they will all still be out this weekend.
A couple of days ago Jay Irvine posted a picture of himself on social media getting surgery on his shoulder. He is almost certainly out for the remainder of the 2018 season and we wish him a speedy recovery.
Trevon Bradford sustained a shoulder injury last week after a tremoundous touchdown catch. Jonathan Smith has been hopeful that he will suit up and play against Nevada, but his status is still up in the air. My guess is he plays on Saturday, but in a limited capacity (not returning punts or taking a lot of hand-offs).
*Bradford was ruled OUT with his shoulder injury
Last week Jonathan Smith said there was a 50/50 chance Dunn plays against Southern Utah. Dunn was in street clothes for the game and did not play. My guess is he’ll be close to 100% headed into this weekend and will see some action
There were reports that Grant tweaked his ankle a bit against Southern Utah. I don’t believe it is too serious and he should be good to go against the Wolf Pack tomorrow.
*This story will be updated as we get the final word on each player.
