Oregon State senior receiver James Rodgers will return to the Oregon State active lineup this Saturday when the Beavers host the UCLA Bruins in the Pac-12 Conference opener for both teams, head coach Mike Riley announced Wednesday.
Rodgers is coming back from two knee surgeries after suffering a season-ending injury while scoring a touchdown in Oregon State's win over Arizona in October of 2010.
He was granted a fifth year of eligibility as he was eligible per NCAA rules for a medical hardship.
Rodgers is fourth at OSU for career receiving yards with 2,064 and third for receptions with 177. He holds the school record for all-purpose yards with 5,784, which currently ranks fourth among active FBS players. So, you can imagine the Beavers are excited to get him back in the line-up.
