Tristian Gebbia will have surgery on his hamstring this week and is out for the season.
Oregon State football injury/availability updates, per coach Smith:— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) December 7, 2020
•Tristan Gebbia will have season-ending surgery on left hamstring.
•Jermar Jefferson could return this week. TBD midweek.
•B.J. Baylor and Champ Flemings' status TBD.
•Backup QB Nick Moore has left program.
Coach Smith announced the unfortunate news during his along with other injury updates today during his presser. A quick google search on hamstring surgery recovery (courtesy of Orlando Orthopedic Center) says that “it requires a lengthy recovery of about three to four months and patients can get back to their normal activities after about four to six months.”
The Beavers will also be without Nick Moore as he has left the program. Moore was neck and neck with Chance Nolan for backup QB duties before the season. Without Gebbia or Moore; Oregon State will have Ben Gulbranson (true freshman) and Jackson Chryst (redshirt freshman) backing up Chance Nolan for the remainder of the season.
Chance Nolan had his moments against Utah on Saturday, but overall struggled to consistently move the football. If Jermar Jefferson can play that would be a big boost to the offense this coming weekend. I’m sure the coaching staff is crossing their fingers that Chance Nolan stays healthy and will probably be pleading with him to slide or get out of bounds when he decides to tuck the ball and run.
