Zach Maynard left Tuesday's practice on a cart and, despite an MRI showing no ligament damage to his left knee, the California Golden Bears might be without their starting quarterback come Saturday's game against the Oregon Ducks, according to MercuryNews.com.
Head coach Jeff Tedford told MercuryNews.com that he "no idea" when his starting quarterback could return.
Maynard injured his knee in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against the Washington Huskies, and he was replaced by Allan Bridgford. Bridgford, a junior, is working with the first team unit in practice this week as Tedford's team prepares to face the high-scoring Ducks without Maynard.
Bridgford replaced Maynard on Saturday with the Golden Beras trailing the Huskies, 21-13. He led a 44-yard drive that ended on the UW 25-yard line after an incomplete pass on fourth down. Bridgford is 4-for-16 passing for 23 yards this season. In limited action last year, he completed 13-of-32 passes for 184 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions.
Maynard has been erratic this year, going for 2,214 yards with 10 interceptions to just 12 touchdowns.
