Victor Bolden's backup, Rahmel Dockery, injured his hip in the win.
But Mike Riley said Dockery could practice as soon as Monday, as could Kellen Clute (also a hip pointer). Oregon State plays USC this Saturday in Los Angeles.
Still, Riley said he is considering taking the redshirt off true freshman receiver Xavier Hawkins with Bolden expected to miss some time.
Riley said he was proud of how Richard Mullaney picked up the slack, moving over to flanker when Bolden came out. Mullaney is actually dealing with a shoulder issue, Riley said, making it that much more impressive what he was able to do in the SDSU game.
-- Riley also said Trevor Romaine reclaimed his starting kicking job because Garrett Owens was suspended for "violating athletic department rules for a game." Riley did not offer any specifics. Riley said the staff will determine this week which kicker they'll go with against USC.
-- Riley said there still is no timetable on a return for Isaac Seumalo. He implied Seumalo being at the point he can practice is not imminent.
--Riley credited defensive coordinator Mark Banker for getting the defense into a place early in the season where they only allowed SDSU seven points.
-- Riley said upon entering conference play that the Pac-12 is impossible to peg this year. "Our conference is gonna be crazy throughout the year... You look at the Washington State-Oregon game and you look at the Arizona-Cal game. You kind of know that this is very, very competitive and it's kind of to the point where... 'Who's gonna play the best that day?' because everybody's capable. That's kind of the world that we're gonna live in in the conference."
