James Rodgers awaits test results

The final verdict hasn't yet been revealed on the knee injury Oregon State receiver James Rodgers suffered at Arizona on Saturday, other than it's clear he won't play next weekend at Washington.

That verdict should come Monday after he had an MRI late Sunday. Rodgers is on crutches and wearing a brace. The injury is thought to threaten his season.

If Rodgers, a preseason All-American, is lost for the season, he will have the option to take a medical hardship redshirt. Per NCAA rules, he would qualify as not having played 30 percent of the season -- he's missed one game and three quarters over the Beavers' first five games.

He was hurt last in the first half of the Beavers' upset win against the No. 9 Wildcats after he caught a 56-yard pass and he was tackled well into the endzone. The touchdown catch was nullified by a penalty against the Beavers.
