Horrible news on the injury front, outside linebacker Addison Gumbs has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2019 football season.
Addison Gumbs tore his ACL and is out for the season. Tough blow.— Steve Gress (@stevegress19) September 9, 2019
Gumbs appeared to suffer the injury in the first half against Hawaii. The sophomore pass-rusher transferred to Oregon State from Oklahoma. Gumbs suffered a similar season-ending knee injury with Oklahoma before decided to transfer to Corvallis.
Gumbs appeared in the first two games of this season for Oregon State. He recorded four tackles(two TFL) against Oklahoma State. While he was with the Sooners he appeared in four games, making eight tackles and tallying one pass breakup.
This news is heart-breaking for Gumbs as he was rounding into form and was a vital piece of an improving Oregon State defense. The Beavers will have to regroup as they return to Corvallis and gear up for the final 10 games of the season. The outside linebacking corps is looking thin with the absence of Andrezj Hughes-Murray, Gumbs and Matthew Tago also suffered a knee-injury (not season ending).
The football team also announced that Gus Lavaka and Kaleb Hayes will not play in the first half against Cal Poly due to their on-field altercations against Hawaii Saturday night. More injury updates from the Nick Daschel:
