Adam Muema injury update: San Diego State RB likely to play against Oregon State

USA TODAY Sports

Adam Muema has been slowed down by an ankle injury, but he is expected to play on Saturday.

The 2013 season has not gone to plan for San Diego State running back Adam Muema, he has an ankle injury that has limited his production. So far this year, Muema has only 22 yards in 13 carries in just two games. That injury has helped contribute to the Aztecs 0-2 record to start the season.

San Diego State was off in Week 3 and the staff gave Muema the week off in order to rest his banged up ankle, and for the Aztecs' sake they better hope Muema's ankle is healed.

Muema returned to practice this past Sunday albeit with the scout team, but head coach Rocky Long was happy with what he saw:

"He looked like a hundred percent today but that's scout team work," Long said, adding that whether Muema plays against the Beavers will be determined by how well he does in practice this week.

For Aztecs to get the win on Saturday against Oregon State, or at least stay competitive, they need Muema to play at a high strength. Oregon State is suspect in the running game as they allowed Utah to rush for 260 yards last week, and allow five yards a carry on the ground.
