The Utah Utes need all they help they can get to slow Oregon State receivers Markus Wheaton and Brandin Cooks, two of the fastest receivers in the Pac-12.
Unfortunately they'll be short-handed in the secondary for the second week in a row.
Quade Chappuis, who started at safety while Brian Blechen was suspended for the first three games, didn't make the trip for the Oregon State game.
Chappuis, who did not play in Utah's loss at UCLA, has 23 tackles and a forced fumble this year.
Taking his place on the depth chart for Saturday's game is Charles Henderson, a redshirt freshman receiver who primarily returns punts for the Utes and is ranked 28th nationally averaging 10.56 yards per return.
Fullback Max Moala, who has not played in the last two games, did not make the trip either.
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham does not discuss injuries unless they are season-ending.
