Zach Maynard injury: Cal quarterback leaves in 4th quarter with apparent knee injury

California Golden Bears quarterback Zach Maynard left Friday's game against Washington with an apparent knee injury.

Maynard appeared to injure his knee during a designed quarterback run on the first play of Cal's final fourth quarter drive. Maynard gained one yard before being tackled by two Huskies. He appeared to twist his knee as he went down. He stayed down on the field for several minutes while being attended to by trainers. Maynard was eventually helped off the field before being carted back to the locker room.

He did not return to the game and was replaced by Allan Bridgford. Before leaving, Maynard completed 15 of 29 passes in the game for 175 yards. He did not throw a touchdown and was intercepted once. Bridgford replaced Maynard for the final drive and completed 2 of 7 passes for 26 yards.

The extent of the injury is still unknown, although any kind of serious injury would likely keep Maynard out of the final two games of the season.
