McCants, Oshinowo not ready for Oregon State camp

Oregon State offensive tackle Timi Oshinowo and running back Ryan McCants are out and doubtful -- respectively -- for preseason camp because they are still recovering from knee injuries, the Corvallis Gazette-Times reported Friday.

Oshinowo was the projected starter at right tackle, while McCants is Jacquizz Rodgers top backup.

Oshinowo, who was injured in the spring game, will be out until at least October. The spring depth chart lists redshirt freshman Colin Kelly as his backup, though it's possible the lineup could be further shuffled.

The Beavers were already replacing three starters from their 2008 offensive line.

With McCants sidelined, Jovan Stevenson and Ashton Jefferson will compete for the backup job. Stevenson, a true freshman who participated in spring practices, is the favorite, according to the Gazette-Times.
