Oregon State running back Storm Woods was knocked out of the Beavers’ conference win against Utah on a pass play where, diving out to throw a block for Sean Mannion, Woods’ head was snapped back. He was helped onto a stretcher and gave fans a thumbs up before being carted off, but OSU coach Mike Riley said Woods suffered a concussion.

Woods was sent to the University Hospital in Salt Lake City, treated there and cleared in time to join the Beavers on their charter flight back from the Salt Lake International Airport.

He is going to take the traditional OSU procedures for concussion treatment. He is out indefinitely prior to the week of practice to prepare for the San Diego State game. For this week, he’s being replaced by junior Terron Ward and, possibly, senior Jovan Stevenson. Riley said Sunday he’s not ready to name a backup for Ward, and instead of Stevenson, it could be the unfortunately named redshirt freshman Chris Brown.
