Fallen lineman

It looks like starting defensive tackle Matt Malele isn’t playing. Malele is on the field but not suited up. Malele missed practice earlier in the week, but coach Jeff Tedford said it was simply to rest his knee, which has been a chronic problem. Cody Jones likely will start in his place.
