Gavin Andrews was back on the field on Monday for the Beavers after missing the last two games with an ankle injury.

Andrews had surgery the Monday after the Utah game and missed the last two games.

He worked at right guard with the first team.

Andrews said it felt great to be back and practicing.

He compared the time on the sideline with sitting out with mononucleosis last year.

“It felt like when I had mono and I wasn’t able to do anything,” he said. “At least this time I was able to go to rehab and do something to get it stronger faster.

“That was a relief to do that, but it was definitely painful to not play.”
