Oregon State Vs. Arizona: Running Back Jovan Stevenson Questionable For Next Week's Game Against BYU

Oregon State tailback Jovan Stevenson ran for a career-high 99 yards in Saturday's game against Arizona, but he also removed himself from the game in the fourth quarter after experiencing dizziness.

Head coach Mike Riley on Sunday indicated that the Beavers sophomore may not be able to start this coming week's game against BYU, Via Paul Buker at the Oregonian.

Buker reports that Stevenson was not showing signs of a concussion on Sunday, but that the team was following concussion protocols, and that Riley is uncertain what Stevenson's status will be by Tuesday's practice time.

Malcolm Agnew, the Beavers freshman who rushed for 223 yards in the season opener against Sacramento State, has been unavailable since that game due to hamstring issues. Riley indicated that Stevenson's uncertain status may result in Agnew practicing on Tuesday in his place.

This may potentially be a troubling issue for OSU, as Stevenson played a key part in OSU's come-from-behind victory over the Wildcats. Coaches will be monitoring his status closely over the coming week.
