A bit weary of the questions but to the point, Cal coach Mike Montgomery opened his media session Monday by letting us know sophomore Allen Crabbe and senior Hamp Kamp are both fine, will practice and play this week when the Bears travel to USC and UCLA.
“No injury report. Nothing. I’ve got a full squad today,” Montgomery said.
I spoke briefly with Crabbe, who said his right foot is feeling good. He did not sprain an ankle, but had some soreness in his foot last week, which is gone. “I’m fine,” he said.
Unlike last week, he wore no protective boot, and was walking normally.
Kamp, who jammed or sprained a finger, also is OK.
Both had X-rays Saturday after the Arizona State game, and all was normal.
