Cal held its usual brief Sunday conditioning workout tonight. Afterward, Jeff Tedford said the team came out of Saturday’s game in pretty good shape healthwise.
The only concern is punter Bryan Anger, who suffered a sprained knee trying to get away a punt after mishandling the snap from Nick Sundberg. Anger is going to undergo an MRI on Tuesday and Tedford said the punter will rest most of the week. Anger said he thought he will play Saturday at Washington State.
Tedford provided some interesting insight about the mishandled snap after the game.
“One of the problems with having such a great snapper like Nick Sundberg is he snaps it so fast and so hard that you really have to be a great athlete to catch it,” he said. “That thing was smoking when it got to Bryan. Obviously, we don’t want that to happen again.”
Tedford said he was pleased with what he saw after reviewing the tape of the game. He hadn’t started working on Washington State as of Sunday night.
