Two starters, tight end Joe Halahuni (head) returned to practice on Thursday, as did CB Brandon Hardin (calf), according to reports in the Oregonian and other media outlets. Thursday marked the Beavers' last full scale practice before Saturday's game against Oregon (12:30, ABC).
DT Brennan Olander (pectoral muscle), said head man Mike Riley, is now probable -- as long as the doctors assure him no further damage can be done by Olander playing.
Olander has been out since the UCLA game though he has been partially participating in practice (individual drills) since last week.
Still, it's hard to see Olander simply coming back into the starting lineup and playing the whole game against the Ducks.
If Olander is able to go, he might be able to go for only a few plays here and there.
The Beavs still figure to feature Kevin Frahm as the mainstay in Olander's spot alongside Stephen Paea, with Evan Hull seeing rotational play the last three games.
Halahuni & Hardin good to go, Olander too?
