Cal down two LBs after Broussard injury, Wilkerson transfer
Sonny Dykes said Sunday that sophomore linebacker Nathan Broussard suffered a season-ending knee injury and David Wilkerson will transfer.
With the regular season less than two weeks away, Cal has lost two linebackers from the 2013 roster.
Sonny Dykes told reporters Sunday that linebacker Nathan Broussard will miss the season due to a knee injury suffered in Saturday's scrimmage. The sophomore tore his ACL, and will undergo surgery in the next two weeks to repair the damage.
Fellow linebacker David Wilkerson was granted his release to transfer. An ankle injury cost the junior all of his 2012 season, a disappointing setback after using a medical redshirt in 2010.
Fans are still awaiting the Cal debut of former Penn State linebacker Khairi Fortt. Fortt had the option to play immediately due to NCAA sanctions, but sat out while recovering from a knee injury. He has reportedly been limited at times during camp this fall, but his presence is even more important now that depth has become a concern at that position.
Cal kicks off the 2013 season against Northwestern on Aug. 31. Dykes announced Friday that freshman Jared Goff will start at quarterback against the Wildcats, ending a competition that included redshirt freshman Zach Kline and junior Austin Hinder.
