Sean Mannion upgraded to starter for Oregon State’s next game

For having a torn meniscus, Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion has recovered rather quickly as it appears he will have missed two games recovering from the injury.

Beavers coach Mike Riley said Monday that Mannion has been upgraded to return as the team’s starting quarterback for this weekend’s game at Washington.

Mannion initially suffered the injury earlier this month against Washington State and immediately underwent knee surgery. Junior Cody Vaz has filled in beautifully for Mannion in two wins over BYU and Utah, going 36-of-58 for 506 yards and three touchdowns. Mannion dressed for last Saturday’s game against the Utes and theoretically could have played if needed.

Mannion has thrown for 1,358 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions in four games this year.

    Mannion will be fine unless he is in a wheelchair.
    The Huskies have absolutely no pass rush and will have a long day Saturday if they don’t figure it out.

    Arthroscope surgery for cleaning up a torn meniscus is minimally invasive. I’ve had both knees ‘scoped (at different times) and was walking around within two days. A couple of weeks for a healthy, fit youngster like Mannion is plenty of time.
