While the Oregon State Beavers beat the Utah Utes in thrilling fashion on Saturday, escaping Rice-Eccles Stadium with a 51-48 overtime victory, the win was marred by the loss of starting running back Storm Woods. The sophomore, who ran for 940 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2012, suffered a scary injury while attempting to block for quarterback Sean Mannion. Woods remained prone on the field for an agonizing five minutes before flashing a thumbs-up to the crowd as he was taken away in an ambulance.

According to Oregon Live, head coach Mike Riley announced on Sunday that Woods suffered a concussion on the play, but that he was thankfully allowed to fly home with the team after the game. Riley went on to say that Woods will be out indefinitely as he undergoes the proper evaluations and tests from the medical staff, meaning that Terron Ward and Jovan Stevenson will be taking over the rushing duties during OSU’s upcoming game against San Diego State.

We at FanSided hope that Woods makes a full recovery and is back on the field soon.
