Oregon State running back Ryan McCants continues to make progress in healing from his offseason knee surgery from three months ago, and said the goal is still to be back to practice by the end of September.

That leaves the Beavers a ball carrier short for at least four games. McCants, a sophomore, is supposed to be the backup to Jacquizz Rodgers.

In his place until he returns will be the combination of true freshman Jovan Stevenson and redshirt freshman Jordan Jenkins.

"We are still in the wait-and-see mode," McCants said. "We are still hitting our goals in my progress. I'm starting to run a little faster. I haven't done any serious cutting drills. But I'm happy with my progress and I'm ahead of schedule. I'm still a couple weeks out."
