Stanford redshirt senior WR Devon Cajuste is expected to return to practice this week.
"He should be ready to go," said head coach David Shaw. "I expect him to start in our first game." Cajuste is expected to be Stanford's No. 1 receiver this season, but expect them to rely more on the running game this season than they did in 2014. Cajuste accounted for 18.6 percent of Stanford's 2014 receiving yards and 13.7 percent of the receptions. Aug 24 - 10:56 AM

Standford redshirt senior WR Devon Cajuste "plays spotty football" despite "outstanding measurables," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Cajuste looks dominant during some games then is a non factor in others," wrote Pauline. The draft expert was quick to point out that at least some of this is due to a lack of talent at the quarterback position since Andrew Luck departed for NFL immortality, but he doesn't lay all the blame at the feet of Kevin Hogan. The 6-foot-4, 228-pound receiver caught 34 balls for 557 yards and six touchdowns in 2014. CBS Sports analyst Rob Rang voiced similar concerns in early August, questioning whether Cajuste has the speed to separate from defenders.

Stanford redshirt senior WR Devon Cajuste "has some 'tweener traits that could limit his draft stock," cautions CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"He's been reported to have impressive speed but shows only average burst off the line and does not appear to have a legitimate second gear to pull away," Rang wrote. "Cajuste creates separation with firm breaks on his routes and uses his height, body control and hand-eye coordination to win contested passes." The 6-foot-4, 229-pound Cajuste had 34 catches for 557 yards and six touchdowns last year while struggling with a nagging injury that Stanford didn't disclose due to school policy. "Cajuste has the strength and length to control defensive backs as a blocker when he locks on but his lack of speed and agility (relative to defensive backs) too often leave him scrambling to find them," Rang wrote. "Cajuste does not possess the power at this time to hold up as a traditional inline blocker and may, in fact, project best as an H-back type. His greatest asset may be his strong, reliable hands."

Stanford redshirt junior WR Devon Cajuste (undisclosed injury) had 50 receiving yards on a pair of receptions Saturday against Oregon State.

Leading up to the game, Cajuste was listed as "questionable to probable." Since Stanford doesn't disclose injury information, we aren't sure what ailment he's been suffering from. Regardless, it appears as though Cajuste won't need to miss any additional field time.

Stanford redshirt junior WR Devon Cajuste is "questionable to probable" to play against Oregon State.

Stanford does not disclose injury information, so we do not even know what is ailing Cajuste. Thus far in 2014, Cajuste has recorded 18 receptions for 243 yards and three touchdowns.

Stanford redshirt junior WR Devon Cajuste will miss Saturday's game against Arizona State with an undisclosed injury.

As per their policy, Stanford does not disclose injury details so we do not even know what is ailing Cajuste. Thus far, Cajust has recorded 18 receptions for 243 yards and three touchdowns in five games.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt believes Stanford redshirt junior WR Devon Cajuste could be more special than teammate Ty Montgomery.

Montgomery has earned plenty of buzz thanks to his exceptional straight-line speed, but we think Montgomery does not show that same speed during non-vertical routes and does not consistently win in contested situations. Cajuste is a much bigger frame and has previously been used in the same capacity as receiving tight ends.

Stanford head coach David Shaw believes redshirt junior WR Devin Cajuste is being overlooked.

"He's worked extremely hard this year. He's 224 and runs in the low 4.4s," Shaw told reporters last week. "Numbers like that don't make sense." Cajuste only had 28 receptions last season, but had 22.9 yards per catch in compiling 642 yards and five touchdowns. "He broke our yards-per-catch record, which hasn't been talked about much," Shaw said. "I'm excited we're taking the next step to give guys (like Cajuste) the chance to influence football games." Cajuste's short shuttle time would have been second fastest at the 2014 NFL Combine behind Brandin Cooks' 3.81 seconds.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman notes Stanford redshirt junior WR Devin Cajuste posted a short shuttle time that would have been second fastest at the 2014 NFL Combine.

Oregon State's Brandin Cooks posted the fastest short shuttle (3.81 seconds), followed by Damian Copeland (3.90) and Odell Beckham Jr. (3.94). Projecting success from one Combine figure might be a slippery slope, but the time is impressive regardless. However, it does not matter until next February's event. Stanford coaches have previously placed Cajuste in the voided Zach Ertz role.

Stanford redshirt sophomore WR Devon Cajuste will play against Oregon on Thursday.

Cajuste has been dealing with a bruised right knee. Statistically he is the team's second leading receiver with 21 catches for 377 yards and four touchdowns. Cajuste has taken on a somewhat similar role as Zach Ertz.

Stanford redshirt sophomore WR Devon Cajuste will miss Saturday's game against Oregon State with a bruised right knee.

Head coach David Shaw did note that Cajuste will be available against Oregon on Nov. 7. Cajuste is the team's second leading receiver behind Ty Montgomery, which is to be expected after Shaw noted the redshirt sophomore would help fill the void left by Zach Ertz's departure.

Stanford redshirt sophomore WR Devon Cajuste is "helping fill the void" left by departed TE Zach Ertz, according to Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

Weidl says Cajuste is producing from the slot and when isolated on the outside. Ertz was used from multiple alignments last season, squaring off against linebackers, safeties and corners. We hope Cajuste is a better mover, but Ertz's versatility landed him in the second-round. Cajuste has caught 10 passes for 244 yards and three touchdowns this season.
