One of the scariest moments of the weekend took place in Salt Lake City on Saturday night as Oregon State running back Storm Woods was loaded on a stretcher and placed in an ambulance after laying motionless on the field for a minute. Thankfully Woods' injury is not as severe as it could have been given the circumstances.

Oregon State announced on Sunday that Woods had suffered a concussion and is out indefinitely.

The school says Woods will go through the normal concussion protocol before being cleared to return to the field, though Oregon State coach Mike Riley said he doesn't anticipate that Woods will be cleared to play against San Diego State this week.

Riley also said that Terron Ward will start in Woods' place.

Through three games Woods has accounted for 315 total yards and two touchdowns.
