Thanks to Building the Dam for gathering all the news on this breaking story from Corvallis. Huge news for the Beavers: Sean Mannion is out indefinitely with an injury that he just had surgery on.
Here is head coach Mike Riley talking about Mannion's injury.
According to a local radio station, Mannion suffered a meniscus tear that required surgery; thankfully it wouldn't be a serious operation and Mannion could return to duty in three to four weeks if that report is correct. '
If this is correct, Mannion would miss at least the next three games against BYU, Utah, and Washington, with a decent chance of missing the Arizona State game too. But Mannion should be able to return in time for a road date with Stanford and home dates with Cal and Oregon.
Cody Vaz now would come in to start for Oregon State. The junior saw limited playing time two years ago and was not particularly impressive. He'll have a monumental task this week as he heads to Provo to face one of the best defenses in the country.
