The Beavers are off to a 4-0 start, thanks in large part to a passing game that Mannion has led. While the Oregon State offense is averaging only 23.5 points per game, it is eighth in the nation with 339.5 passing yards per game.
Mannion has thrown for 1,358 yards and seven touchdowns in his four games this season.
With Mannion out, junior Cody Vaz will likely start in his place. Vaz hasn't played since he was a freshman in 2010, completing six of his 17 passes for 48 yards.
