Zach Maynard, Cal’s starting quarterback the past two seasons, left the practice field Tuesday morning riding on a cart with a brace immobilizing his left knee.
Hardly an encouraging scenario with No. 2 Oregon, the nation’s high-scoring team, coming to town on Saturday.

An MRI showed no ligament damage to Maynard’s knee but there is not even a timetable on when he might resume practicing. So junior Allan Bridgford is being prepped to start while Maynard rehabs.
