CORVALLIS - Quarterback Lyle Moevao couldn't go full speed when Oregon State opened practice this week.

The senior spent much of the summer rebuilding strength in his throwing shoulder following offseason surgery.

He completed individual drills and handed the ball off to running backs Monday, but watched Sean Canfield run the offense and didn't throw any passes during a team drill.

Moevao says he can make many of the throws asked of him, but he's yet to regain the needed velocity.

He hopes to be ready for the season opener, but calls that a "best-case scenario."
