James Rodgers gets medical hardship
CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon State flanker James Rodgers has been granted a medical hardship for this past season, meaning he can return for 2011.
Rodgers, a senior, played in four of the team's first five games before he suffered a left knee injury that required surgery.
A team captain, Rodgers was averaging 176.8 all-purpose yards per game when he was injured, ranking him sixth in the nation.
Rodgers, the older brother of running back Jacquizz Rodgers, had not used a redshirt season while at Oregon State.
