Football: No news yet on injured Bears

Had our weekly Sunday afternoon with Jeff Tedford, who reported there is no update yet on OLB Chris McCain (shoulder) or TE Richard Rodgers (foot), both injured Saturday against Southern Utah.

Tedford said both had MRI exams earlier in the day, but results were not available.

OT Matt Summers-Gavin (knee), who sat out the Southern Utah game, will be evaluated on a daily basis this week, Tedford said. MSG likely won’t practice until at least midweek, and will make the trip to Ohio State, regardless of whether he suits up to play.

Meanwhile, there is still no clear timetable for ILB Khairi Fortt, the Penn State transfer who underwent knee surgery last spring before arriving in Berkeley. He will not play this week.

Elsewhere . . .

— Junior Keenan Allen was honored as a national Punt Returner Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards following his 69-yard return against Southern Utah.

Allen ranks fourth nationally in punt return average at 22.2 yards per.
