Projected starting left tackle Matt Summers-Gavin suffered a right knee injury during Sunday’s practice and wound up with crutches and a knee brace. Summers-Gavin is expected to undergo an  MRI on Monday to determine the severity.

Coach Jeff Tedford said the injury took place on a play where Summers-Gavin was pulling. Tedford said the next thing he knew Summers-Gavin was in pain on the turf.

Summers-Gavin played left guard last season and was one of Cal’s better offensive linemen, but he had trouble staying healthy. Summers-Gavin missed time with a concussion and shoulder injury last year. In the eight games he started, Cal went 7-1.

If Summers-Gavin is out for an extended period of time, Mitchell Schwartz would likely move from right tackle to left tackle. Schwartz started the final 10 games at left tackle in 2008.
