IN PULLMAN THREE players sustained injuries. Fortunately, the outlook looks promising for DT Brennan Olander, TE Brady Camp and TE Joe Halahuni -- all are expected to play in the Civil War.


PLAYER: TE Brady Camp

INJURY: Shoulder sprain

STATUS: Limited in practice

IMPACT: Despite being limited in practice, the coaches expect Camp to play in the Civil War.


PLAYER:  WR Darrell Catchings

INJURY: High ankle sprain

STATUS: Out for the year

IMPACT: While the effects of Catchings not in the lineup have been felt, it has been lessened considerably by the emergence of Damola Adeniji stepping up. The Beavs may end up deciding to apply for a medical hardship waiver for Catchings at the end of the year. He cannot use the standard redshirt as he has played in two games.


PLAYER: TE Joe Halahuni

INJURY: Left thumb

STATUS: Practicing

IMPACT: Halahuni has his left hand wrapped and could have a sprained left thumb. The sophomore will play in the Civil War.


PLAYER: QB Lyle Moevao

INJURY: Right throwing shoulder; right ankle injury

STATUS: Not practicing

IMPACT: Tore a ligament in his right ankle in late October. All signs point to Moevao's career being over, but he will try for a medical redshirt although he most likely won't get it. No impact so far this season as Sean Canfield has been on fire and healthy.


PLAYER: OT Timi Oshinowo


STATUS: Limited in practice.

IMPACT: Before injuring his knee in the spring he was pegged as the starter at left tackle. Due to his injury he likely won't play in 2009, but could possibly help fill out the two deeps if disaster struck.



PLAYER: S Josh LaGrone

INJURY: Knee (torn ACL)

STATUS: Had surgery in late August and is out for the year.

IMPACT: Was playing "outstanding" according to Riley and would have played on special teams and possibly at safety.


PLAYER: DT Brennan Olander

INJURY: Knee (ACL strain)

STATUS: Taking it easy in practice.

IMPACT: Olander has been a huge lift on the defensive line in recent weeks, disrupting the backfield on a regular basis. He is expected to play in the Civil War, but is not expected to be 100 percent.


PLAYER: LB Tony Wilson


STATUS: Out for the year.

IMPACT: Depth at middle linebacker took a major hit which forced true freshman Rueben Robinson into action.
