Oregon State's James Rodgers Will Miss Remainder Of Season With Knee Injury

James Rodgers, Oregon State's leading wide receiver, will miss the remainder of the season with an undisclosed left knee injury

Rodgers, a senior, and brother of Beavers running back Jaquizz Rodgers, was tackled awkwardly from behind while catching a 56-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter of OSU's 29-27 over Arizona on Saturday; the play was disallowed because of an ineligible receiver downfield. There is video of the injury if you want to watch (note: you do not). 

Oregon State head coach Mike Riley released the following statement.

"We are tremendously disappointed with the news that one of our team captains and leaders is sidelined for the rest of the season. I know James will stay very involved with the team during his rehabilitation process and we look forward to his return as soon as possible."

The small silver lining in all of this is that Rodgers is eligible for a medical hardship year -- "due to also missing 5 quarters as a result of the concussion he suffered in the Boise St. game, Rodgers has played in less than 30% of the total of the regular season." The team has already said it plans to submit an application for a firth year at the end of the season.  

In four games this season, Rodgers had 16 receptions for 215 yards and two touchdowns.
