UNLV senior receiver Rodelin Anthony, who caught two passes for 73 yards in last weekend's 38-3 season-opening victory over Sacramento State, practiced at full speed from start to finish on Tuesday at Rebel Park, and will be good to go when the team faces Oregon State at 8 p.m. on Saturday night.
Anthony sprained his right foot and was walking in a protective boot on Sunday, but has been cleared. He also caught a 55-yard fourth quarter touchdown in the victory.
As for senior linebacker/defensive end Jason Beauchamp, his status is still in question as he nurses a sprained right ankle.
Beauchamp said in his Sun blog, Now or Never, that the injury occurred when he was hit from behind on Saturday with his foot planted firmly in the turf.
He was also in a boot on Sunday, but on Tuesday came out for practice in full gear. However, he didn't drip a bit of sweat, as he was held out of action.
"If I have any chance of playing, I will be playing," the 2008 Mountain West Conference tackles leader said in the weekly blog entry. "I want to practice so the coaches know I'll be ready, just try to come out early and maybe get some practice in on Wednesday. But, either way, I think I'm off to a speedy recovery. I've been resting it. I've been in the treatment room every day, non-stop, including Labor Day.
"I'm doing what I've gotta do."
