Oregon State receiver James Rodgers is out for the season after suffering a knee injury in Saturday's game against the Arizona Wildcats. Rodgers was already ruled out for Saturday's game against the Huskies, but will miss the rest of the season as well.
The Oregonian's Lindsay Schnell tweeted the news.
It's official: James Rodgers done for the year. Devastating loss for Oregon State. More details to come as we get them.
It's been a rough year for the talented wide receiver. Against Boise State, Rodgers took a vicious blow to the head from Bronco linebacker Will Venable, knocking him out cold and leaving him with a concussion. After returning to the field, he came down awkwardly in the end zone and injured his left knee in gruesome fashion.
Rodgers will be eligible for a medical redshirt should he choose to return to school. He will already have a degree and may declare for the NFL draft instead of returning, however.
UW takes on OSU without the services of James, but with the services of Jacquizz Rodgers this Saturday at Husky Stadium.
