James Rodgers Injury Update: Oregon State Speedster Cleared For 'Limited Practice'

James Rodgers, the best wide receiver the Oregon State football team had last season, has been cleared to practice again following last year's season-ending knee injury. The Beavers' dynamo and older brother of Jacquizz Rodgersmet with doctors on Thursday and seems to be close to returning according to a statement from coach Mike Riley.

Rodgers has been "cleared to practice in a limited fashion, for a to be determined amount of time," Riley said in a statement (via SB Nation's Building The Dam). "We will have more information after another meeting with the physican and the training staff at some point next week."

The good news, or at least better than bad news, came after Rodgers met with doctors at Stanford University on Tuesday. He has another meeting scheduled next week where he'll hopefully find out the "to be determined" length of time mentioned above.

This is just another reminder, of course, that football season is upon us and everyone should be able to be excited about something. Hopefully Rodgers gets more good news soon and is cleared for opening weekend.
