Cal senior Bill Tyndall, penciled in as the starting right offensive tackle, will undergo surgery Wednesday after breaking his left ankle Saturday during a scrimmage.

Tyndall will be out about four months, coach Sonny Dykes said.

Dykes said the Bears likely will used as many as four different players at the position through Saturday, when workouts end with the spring game. “We’re going to experiment a little bit and move some guys around and see how they respond this week,” Dykes said.

The Bears’ 12th of 15 spring workouts wasn’t their best, Dykes.

“I thought we were sluggish,” he said. “Didn’t have the same bounce we’ve been having. Look like they were a little worn out. We’re a little bit beat up.”

Nineteen players sat out practice Monday due to health issues.

“The good thing was we were able to come out and have a functional practice and get better and look good in some ways.”
