STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -Stanford running back Jason Evans will miss the rest of the season with an injured left knee, becoming the latest Cardinal running back sidelined this year.
Evans tore his ACL in last Saturday's 21-20 victory at Arizona, when he rushed for a career-high 78 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. He is expected to have surgery next week.
Evans was playing in place of injured starter Anthony Kimble, who is not expected to be available for Stanford (3-4, 2-3 Pac-10) on Saturday at Oregon State because of a shoulder injury. Freshman Jeremy Stewart also has an injured shoulder and is questionable for this week's game.
The Cardinal are hoping that Toby Gerhart can return this week after missing the past five games with a knee injury. Redshirt freshman Tyrone McGraw is expected to start against the Beavers after running for 50 yards on 16 carries against the Wildcats last week.
Evans, a fifth-year senior, had 30 carries for 105 yards to go along with five catches for 51 yards this season.
``I'm still look forward to a lot of good times for this team this season,'' Evans said. ``Somebody will step in and do well. That's what everybody has done so far. I still think we can reach our goal to make a bowl game.''
Coach Jim Harbaugh also announced on Tuesday that offensive lineman Allen Smith will not return this season from his left knee injury. Smith had surgery after being injured on Sept. 22 against Oregon and was hoping to return later this season.
