California wide receiver Keenan Allen won't play against Washington

By Chris Huston | College Football Writer

If California is going to beat Washington on Friday night, it will have to do so without the services of star wide receiver Keenan Allen, according to a report by Cal Sports Digest that was later confirmed by head coach Jeff Tedford.

"Keenan won't play against Washington," Tedford said. "We'll continue to evaluate him on a weekly basis."

According to Tedford, Allen has a posterior cruciate ligament injury and is looking at a two-to-three-week recovery.

Allen reportedly suffered the injury during an onside kick attempt late in the game against Utah, with the Bears down by 22 points.

The junior wideout has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal season for the 3-6 Bears. Through nine games, he has 61 catches for 737 yards and six touchdowns. Freshmen Darius Powe and Bryce Treggs are likely to get the most reps in his absence.

Cal has lost to Washington three years in a row.
