Oregon State's Halahuni opts for surgery

Oregon State tight end/H-back Joe Halahuni will have surgery on his bothersome left shoulder this week, which means it's unlikely he will be ready for the Beavers' season opener against Sacramento State. He could miss several games.

Halahuni joins receivers James Rodgers (knee) and Jordan Bishop (ankle) as Beavers with uncertain health heading into the offseason.

The Beavers' options at tight end aren't extensive. Colby Prince is the only one on the roster with playing experience, with redshirt freshmen Connor Hamlett and Tyler Perry also options. Perry was listed as Halahuni's backup on the spring depth chart at H-back. Prince and Hamlett were listed as tight ends.
