Broken collarbone may end Quan's season

TALK ABOUT ADDING insult to injury. Sophomore James Rodgers, the Beavers' return-man, fly sweep aficionado and oh by the way a pretty darned good receiver, reportedly has a broken collarbone. The early outlook does not look promising for 'Quan' to be healed in time for Oregon State's bowl game.

Beaver D battles back, O's 2-min drill sings

CORVALLIS--A day off on Sunday for the Beavs looks to have been just the tonic. Several who sat out Saturday's session were padded up and back in action Monday -- Jeremy Francis, Slade Norris, Bryant Cornell, Aaron Nichols, Darrell Catchings and Casey Kjos all returned. So too was the defense seemingly energized from the brief respite. There's audio from Mike Riley and more, right after the jump.

CORVALLIS--Mike Riley has reviewed Thursday's scrimmage tape, and you can listen to the head man's thoughts and observations in today's audio clip following Friday's action on the field. Meanwhile, Chris Johnson on Friday showed again why he might be the X factor this fall, but Slade Norris and the defense kept a lid on many of the big plays that had haunted them the night before.

OSU FALL CAMP: Day Two, plus audio

CORVALLIS--The day belonged to the receivers and tight ends. Many OSU grabmasters looked to be in near-midseason form, each one seemingly posting a highlight reel catch better than the one before.

Another great rundown on all the Day Two action from our man on the ground..

A comprehensive look at all the black and orange action on Day One from our man on the ground -- plus some audio from Mike Riley.
