Cheney, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Eastern Washington football program received good news Monday as star sophomore quarterback Vernon Adams' shoulder injury suffered on Saturday against Cal Poly doesn't appear to be major.

He is considered probable for the third-ranked Eagles' final regular-season game on Saturday against Portland State.

Adams left Saturday's game against Cal Poly with what was called a shoulder strain. Afterward, Eagles coach Beau Baldwin told the media that Adams' injury was merely a stinger, and that he should be fine going forward.

"He might have been able to play, but we just thought we would do the smart thing moving forward," Baldwin said. "Honestly, we didn't change a lot of what we were doing with (backup quarterback Anthony Vitto). He went in there slinging it and he was just fine."

The Eagles (9-2, 7-0 in the Big Sky Conference) clinched the Big Sky championship and the conference's automatic FCS playoff bid with the win over Cal Poly.

Adams has thrown for 3,602 yards and 41 touchdowns and rushed for 467 yards and four more scores this season. He is considered one of the leading candidates for the Walter Payton Award, which honors the outstanding player in the FCS.
