Jeremy Perry Sidelined with Injury

Oregon State University junior preseason All-American offensive guard Jeremy Perry is expected to be sidelined for approximately six weeks after suffering a lower left leg injury in the Beavers’ win over the Utah Utes Thursday night at Reser Stadium. The 6-2 Perry was injured early in the fourth quarter on a running play.

Perry returned to the starting lineup after missing the 2006 Sun Bowl following a knee injury he sustained in the season finale at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. The Hau’ula, Hawai’ native earned 2006 Pac-10 Conference First Team honors last season and was the 2005 Pac-10 Co-Freshman of the Year. The 24-game starter is a candidate for the Lombardi and Outland Trophies. “It’s disappointing news, but I know Jeremy will rehabilitate from this injury and return to the lineup,” head coach Mike Riley said. “We have a veteran offensive line, and while Jeremy will be missed, I expect this team to continue to make progress.”
