Oregon State junior WR Trevon Bradford (shoulder) is trending toward availability for Saturday's game against Arizona.

Bradford (6'0/179) did not travel with his Beaver brothers for last weekend's narrow loss to Nevada, but has made strong progress on the health front over the course of the practice week. When Bradford next suits up for game action, he'll be returning to a 9-153-3 receiving line.

Oregon State redshirt sophomore QB Conor Blount is trending toward receiving the starting call in Saturday's game against Arizona.

Blount (6'1/204) will start if Jake Luton (ankle) is unable to play this weekend. He's attempted at least 19 passes in all three of Oregon State's games to this juncture, throwing for 570 yards (63.9-percent completions) with a 4/1 TD/INT ratio.
Sep 20 - 7:35 PM

Oregon State redshirt senior QB Jake Luton (ankle) is unlikely to play against Arizona on Saturday.

According to Beavers HC Jonathan Smith, Luton has practiced sparingly during the week. The redshirt senior signal-caller is on the mend from an ankle injury after earlier dealing with some concussion concerns, so not the cleanest of openings on the health front, here. Assuming Luton is unable to give it a go on Saturday, Conor Blount would draw the start in his place, to be backed up by Jack Colletto.

Oregon State is hopeful that redshirt junior TE Noah Togiai (knee) will be able to play against Arizona on Saturday.

Togiai (6'4/241) has yet to play this season due to his ongoing rehabilitation of a knee injury sustained near the end of August camp. His return would be a welcome one for the Beavers in a potential home upset spot against Arizona on Saturday. Last season, the redshirt junior hauled in 34 passes for 461 yards and two touchdowns prior to his 2017 campaign being cut short by (you guessed it) a knee injury. He's dealt with knee issues for much of his collegiate career.

Oregon State redshirt senior QB Jake Luton (ankle) did not take part in practice on Tuesday.

Luton had previously been dealing with a concussion, but he managed to play a significant role in this past weekend's loss to Nevada. However, looks like the oft-injured redshirt senior tweaked his ankle against the Wolf Pack, leaving him up in the air for Saturday's home showdown with Arizona. He's been spotted in a boot early in the week. Connor Blount would start in Luton's place if he's unable to get right (or close to it) by time kickoff comes.
Sep 18 - 8:25 PM

Oregon State HC Johnathan Smith is "hopeful" that junior WR Trevon Bradford (shoulder) will be able to play on Saturday against Arizona.

Bradford missed last week's game against Nevada because of the shoulder trip, and didn't make the trip to Reno. It could be a big week of returnees for the Beavers, as there's a chance that Noah Togiai (knee) returns for their contest against the Wildcats as well. We should know more about both players' status as the week progresses.
Sep 17 - 4:37 PM

Oregon State HC Jonathan Smith told reporters that there's an "outside chance" that redshirt junior TE Noah Togiai could play on Saturday against Arizona.

Togiai was scheduled to miss at least a month with his knee injury, so coming back would be beating that mark by a week or so. He's the best pass-catching option on the team, so a return would be a big boon for the Beavers and their passing game. If Togiai can't go, Quinn Smith and Teagan Quitoriano should continue to operate as the tight ends for Oregon State.
Sep 17 - 4:34 PM

Oregon State redshirt senior QB Jake Luton didn't practice on Sunday with a sprained ankle.

Luton played the majority of the game against Nevada in the loss. The senior signal-caller's status should be considered questionable right now. If Luton can't go, Connor Blount would be under center for the Beavers against Arizona.
Sep 17 - 3:46 PM

Oregon State sophomore WR Isaiah Hodgins caught 14 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 37-35 loss to Nevada.

Hodgins (6'4/208) is probably upset that his stat line wasn't enough to get a win against Nevada... and he should be. The sophomore entered 2018 with a 31-275-2 line, so calling tonight's game a breakout would be an understatement. A former four-star recruit, Hodgins earned a starting job this offseason by showing he can use his size. Let's see if he can build upon his breakout game next week against Khalil Tate and Arizona. There should be plenty of opportunities to score in that one.
Sep 15 - 11:05 PM

Oregon State freshman RB Jermar Jefferson rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries in Saturday's 37-35 loss to Nevada.

Jefferson (5'11/190) is a true freshman who is only starting because Artavis Pierce is out with an elbow injury. In relief last week, Jefferson exploded for four touchdowns and 238 yards. While tonight's performance wasn't as big, it was still a strong showing -- despite the loss -- for the three-star recruit as he was able to convert two goal line carries for scores. With Pierce still three weeks away, Jefferson will continue to be the Beavers feature back. Expect around 20 carries for Jefferson next weekend against Arizona if Oregon State can keep the game in reach.
Sep 15 - 10:47 PM

Oregon State junior WR Trevon Bradford will not play in Saturday's game at Nevada due to a shoulder injury.

Bradford did not even make the trip to Reno, and the same goes for RB B.J. Baylor (lower leg). The junior caught three passes for 47 yards and a touchdown in Oregon State's Sept. 15 win over Southern Utah. Redshirt freshman Kolby Taylor and true freshman Jesiah Irish move up in the pecking order as a result of Bradford remaining in Corvallis.
Sep 15 - 7:07 PM

Oregon State redshirt sophomore QB Conor Blount participated in pregame warmups with the first-team offense ahead of Saturday's game against Nevada.

Oregon State's starting quarterback for Saturday's game was considered to be a game-time decision, with senior Jake Luton having suffered a concussion during the team's season-opening loss to Ohio State. Blount played well against Southern Utah Sept. 8, throwing for 226 yards and a touchdown. Luton also played in that game, completing 4-of-9 passes for 63 yards.
Sep 15 - 6:52 PM

Oregon State redshirt senior QB Jake Luton (concussion) is warming with the second team in advance of Saturday's game against Nevada.

Luton sustained a concussion against Ohio State in the opener, and while he was able to enter the game midway through against Southern Utah in Week 2, it looks like he'll at least be opening Saturday's showdown with Nevada on the bench. Conor Blount is warming up with the first team and figures to start this one.
Sep 15 - 6:50 PM

Oklahoma sophomore DE/OLB Addison Gumbs transferred to Oregon State.

Gumbs (6'3/253) has to sit out this year due to NCAA rules, but he's actually already been ruled out for the season with a knee injury he suffered in practice earlier this month, so he wouldn't have been playing either way. This is a big get for the Beavers. A four-star recruit in the Sooners 2017 recruiting class, Gumbs ranked as the No. 128 overall prospect in the 2017 class and the No. 9 weakside defensive end. He'll be one of the more talented defenders on Oregon State's roster. And here's the cool thing: The Beavers will get him for three seasons, beginning next year. OSU HC Jonathan Smith has now added three Power Five transfers over the past two weeks.
Sep 12 - 11:22 AM

Oregon State redshirt sophomore QB Conor Blount will battle senior QB Jake Luton for a chance start on Saturday against Nevada.

Luton was the starter entering the year, but left against Ohio State with a concussion. Blount played reasonably well against the Buckeyes, and then threw for 226 yards in just one half against Southern Utah on Saturday. We likely won't have an idea who starts for the Beavers until later in the week, and it's possible we won't know the starter until kickoff against the Wolf Pack.
