It’s been a common theme with the Oregon State football team this season, but they are experiencing a great deal of injuries. There are a couple of guys that will be game-time decisions against Arizona this weekend, but here’s the overall injury news for this Saturday’s game at Reser Stadium.
- Trevon Bradford - Shoulder (IN)
- Noah Togiai - Knee (IN)
- Jake Luton - Ankle (OUT)
- BJ Baylor - Lower Leg
During Jonathan Smith’s press conference he said there is an outside chance Noah Togiai plays this weekend. Jake Luton has been in a boot most of this week and his ankle injury seems somewhat serious. He really wants to be ready to play against the Wildcats, but I expect both players to be ruled out this weekend. BJ Baylor was sidelined against Nevada with a lower leg injury and his status is up in the air. Trevon Bradford didn’t play against Nevada, but I think he’ll be ready to give it a go against Arizona.
- Artavis Pierce - Elbow (2-3 weeks)
- David Morris - Foot (1-2 weeks)
- Jeromy Reichner - Foot (1-2 weeks)
- Omar Hicks-Onu - Undisclosed injury (unknown)
- Calvin Tyler Jr. - Knee (Out for season)
- Jay Irvine - Shoulder (Out for season)
Thankfully the Beavers avoided any major long-term injuries against Nevada last weekend. Morris, Reichner and Pierce are all making strides to return to the field in the near future.
- Teagan Quitoriano
- B.J. Baylor
- Isaiah Dunn
- Jaydon Grant
- Brandon Kipper
Before the Nevada game freshman tight end, Teagan Quitoriano, sustained a mild hip injury in warm-ups and didn’t play, but he should be good to go against Arizona. Baylor, Dunn and Grant have all been dealing with various injuries, but should be on the mend and ready for full action on Saturday.
Brandon Kipper was never injured, but the offensive lineman received immediate eligibility from the NCAA after transferring from Hawaii last season. He was eligible to play against Nevada, but did not see the field. Kipper still has a redshirt available (he played in 11 games as a true freshman for Hawaii) it’ll be interesting to see how much game time he see’s this season and how he fits into the teams plan’s next season as their will be plenty of starting positions available.
