Oregon State redshirt senior RB Thomas Tyner (hamstring) is probable for Saturday's game against Washington on Saturday.
Tyner (5'11/201) didn't play against Minnesota or Washington State because of the injury. The former Oregon Duck provides a nifty complement to bruising running back Ryan Nall, at least on paper. The Beavers could use all of the help they can get, and things don't get any easier with the Huskies coming into town on Saturday. Wed, Sep 27, 2017 12:47:00 PM

Oregon State redshirt senior RB Thomas Tyner (hamstring) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Washington State.

Tyner (5'11/201) sat out this past weekend's loss to Minnesota due to the injury concern. The speedy transfer from Oregon was expected to act as a change-of-pace option to Ryan Nall after he reemerged from medical retirement this offseason, but has rushed for just 18 yards on six carries in two games this season. Nall and Artavis Pierce will be receiving the bulk of carries against the Cougars on Saturday regardless of whether or not Tyner manages to suit up.

Oregon State redshirt senior RB Thomas Tyner will see reps with the first- and second-team offense during August camp.

Tyner (5'11/201) retired due to shoulder injuries in the winter of 2016, but after a year off, he decided to give it one more shot when he transferred to Oregon State as a graduate back in May. He made it through summer strength-and-conditioning work without any physical setbacks and will be battling it out with Artavis Pierce and TCU RB transfer Trevorris Johnson for the right to back up Ryan Nall during the coming season. The Beavers are still coming together as an overall football team, but they are absolutely loaded at running back if all their various pieces can stay healthy.

Former Oregon redshirt senior RB Thomas Tyner (shoulder) transferred to Oregon State as a graduate.

Tyner announced his medical retirement from the sport in February 2016 following debilitating injuries to both of his shoulders. The former five-star prospect now wants to return to the field, and he hopes to do so for Oregon's archrival. The 5-foot-11, 201-pound Tyner, a speedster who once ran a 4.28-second forty, rushed for 1,284 yards and 14 touchdowns across two seasons with the Ducks. He hasn't played since 2014 and must be cleared by the NCAA. But if healthy and eligible, Tyner will make for a strong No. 2 change-of-pace back behind the thundering Ryan "Wrecking" Nall.

Oregon junior RB Thomas Tyner (shoulder) retired due to medical concerns.

Tyner missed the 2015 campaign after undergoing shoulder surgery in August. In his two active seasons with the Ducks, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound back rushed for a combined 1,284 yards and 14 touchdowns. HC Mark Helfrich said, "We thank Thomas and wish him well. We will continue to support his efforts to graduate from the University of Oregon."

According to Oregon coach Mark Helfrich, junior RB Thomas Tyner's return to the team is uncertain.

Tyner's name is not currently on the roster. He's out for the season with a shoulder injury. "He's not going to be in fall camp and his availability after that remains to be seen," Helfrich said Monday. It's unclear if Tyner has decided to transfer, but there is clearly a rift between player and coaching staff to monitor here.

Oregon junior RB Thomas Tyner will miss the 2015 season due to shoulder surgery.

Tyner backed up Royce Freeman last year and was headed for the same role in 2015, but did contribute 573 yards and five touchdowns. Apparently the surgery is to clear "lingering pain" from a shoulder issue sustained towards the end of Tyner's sophomore campaign. Byron Marshall spent a good portion of the offseason at receiver and could be moved back to running back. Tyner is expected to redshirt and return in 2016.
Sun, Aug 9, 2015 02:09:00 PM reports that Oregon sophomore RB Thomas Tyner "expects to play" Saturday against Wyoming, after injuring his shoulder against Michigan State.

"I had a little problem with my shoulder, a stinger I guess," Tyner told "I wasn't feeling too well so they held me out a little bit. I'm good." The 5-foot-11, 201 pound Tyner injured his shoulder, forcing him out of the game for the entire fourth quarter. The Ducks prospect should be a full go against Wyoming this weekend. This season, Tyner is averaging 12 carries and 48.5 yards rushing a game in Oregon's three-back rotation, showcasing True Freshman Royce Freeman and junior Byron Marshall.

Oregon freshman RB Thomas Tyner, who has impressed coaches since landing on campus, will not redshirt this season.

The decision obviously comes from first year head coach Mark Helfrich. Tyner was removed from practice 10 days ago and was seen in a protective boot, but apparently the injury wasn't serious enough to draw a medical redshirt tag. De'Anthony Thomas will see plenty of carries, but we expect the Ducks to pass more with a seasoned Marcus Mariota at the helm.

Oregon freshman RB Thomas Tyner was wheeled out of practice on Tuesday with his foot in a protective boot.

Beat writer Jason Quick talked to one source who stated "He's fine... nothing broken... thank the Lord." Tyner was later seen walking with crutches. "To my knowledge he is 100 percent," Mark Helfrich said. "The protective boot business is a good business. I should have gotten into that business." Tyner has stood out among freshman during preseason work.
