Cal running back Daniel Lasco said his hip has no pain and that he’s just waiting for things to get sorted out in his head.
Lasco missed the Texas and Washington games before returning to play last week against Washington State. But he was ineffective and was held out of the second half.
“I wouldn’t really say it’s frustration. I’m kind of aggravated with it a little bit,” Lasco said after practice Tuesday. “It’s all in my head. I know it’s 100 percent, or very close to it. I’m going to have to just push through and trust my body and the training staff and strength staff.”
Coach Sonny Dykes expects Lasco to find himself again soon after rushing 10 times for just 22 yards against the Cougars.
“Biggest thing is just timing. For running backs, those guys get into a groove. It’s a timing position in a lot of ways,” Dykes said. “He’s just got to get that timing back, get that rhythm back, get his vision back, to the point where he can trust his vision.”
