CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) Oregon State sophomore wide receiver Seth Collins is being treated at a hospital for an undisclosed ailment, the university confirmed.

Coach Gary Andersen would not comment Monday on Collins' status because of privacy issues.

''We're going to support Seth and we're going to be there for him in any way we possibly can,'' Andersen said. ''My thoughts and prayers are with him, just like the team.''

Collins, the Beavers' former quarterback who switched to receiver this year, has caught 36 passes for 418 yards this season. He caught a pair of passes for 44 yards last weekend at UCLA. The Bruins won 38-24.

Collins started at quarterback in seven games last season, throwing for 936 yards and six touchdowns, but he missed four games because of a knee injury.

Andersen said he was even limited in what he could tell the team.

''They seem fine, but are their minds on Seth? Absolutely. He's a teammate,'' Andersen said. ''It's not just a normal, `Hey, I hurt my knee in practice.'''
