Left guard Robert Gallery is seeking an second opinion for a lower back injury, looks to be out this week against Washington and perhaps longer, coach Tom Cable said Wednesday.
“At this point, it does not look good,” Cable said. “We’ll know more tomorrow.”
Gallery left in the first quarter against Pittsburgh, and according to one teammate, felt numbness in his legs.
Samson Satele, who also left early in the game with a calf injury, was limited in practice. The hope is Satele will start and Chris Morris would play at left guard.
If Gallery and Satele were both out, Morris would play center and Langston Walker would start at left guard.
In either case, there is no one currently on the roster listed as a center in the event Satele doesn’t play.
“We’re working on that,” Cable said.
More to come . . .
