Tuel out again for Cougars

The WSU radio network reported at the outset of the second half of tonight’s Washington State-Oregon State game that Jeff Tuel, the WSU quarterback, won’t return to the game after playing the first half.

There was no immediate word from WSU officials on Tuel’s injury. He was hit hard a couple of times shortly before the half, which ended with OSU on top, 24-14.

It hasn’t been a season to remember for Tuel. He didn’t start the opener against Idaho State, came in on WSU’s third series, and after only a few snaps, was hit and broke his collarbone. He was out until the Stanford game last week and played virtually all night.

As WSU fell behind 31-14 on OSU’s first possession of the second half, Tuel and backup Marshall Lobbestael shared a hug on the sideline and Lobbestael took the field for WSU’s first possession of the third quarter.
