Redshirt sophomore Chris Adcock replaced Geoffrey Gibson as the first-team right guard Tuesday, just ahead of the first scrimmage.
BERKELEY, Calif. –
With the first scrimmage of fall camp set for Wednesday, California
practiced only in helmets Tuesday afternoon with a special focus on situational work, such as the Hail Mary and onside kicks.
-Redshirt sophomore Chris Adcock saw first-team reps at right guard, a position that had previously been filled by Geoffrey Gibson with projected starter Dominic Galas (pectoral) sidelined.
With Adcock, the backup to center Brian Schwenke, otherwise occupied, freshman Matt Cochran worked with the second-team offensive line.
-Desperately thin on the defensive line, Cal head coach Jeff Tedford said junior college transfer linebacker Antione Davis has moved to defensive end.
The Bears practiced with only five linemen, as Viliami Moala (head), Deandre Coleman (left foot), and Puka Lopa (left foot) did not participate.
Coleman is likely to scrimmage tomorrow, but Tedford did not immediately know the availability of the others.
-Tight ends Richard Rodgers (shoulder) and Spencer Hagan (right hand) practiced.
Hagan had his hand and thumb in a heavy cast, while Rodgers used a harness to help stabilize and support his shoulder.
-Wide receiver Maurice Harris (knee) did not participate.
-Linebacker Khairi Fortt (knee) is unlikely to be available to play before week two or three at the earliest, Tedford said.
