Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion suffered a knee injury earlier in the year and it wasn’t known whether or not he’d be back this season, and if he would, when.
Well, it turns out that Mannion will be dressing this weekend, and as Mike Riley puts it:
I don’t let anybody dress down that can’t play in the games.
Cody Vaz is most likely going to start this weekend and has been solid in replacement of Mannion.
Mannion expressed that he “feels great”.
I feel like I could have gone a little earlier (than Wednesday) but it felt wiser to leave it in the doctors’ hands. But right now I feel awesome, I feel 100 percent. I was obviously really excited for my team (vs. BYU), but it’s hard to watch and not get to be there and be a part of it. It’s different to watch a game on TV, so I’m very glad I’ll be able to suit up and participate.
If Mannion is able to go he would probably only play if it was absolutely necessary and the Beavers were getting killed by Utah.
