Covid-19 suspected as Cal Bears rule out seven players just before kickoff

The Cal Bears took the field Saturday at Oregon State without six starters, at least three of them due to coronavirus-related issues.

Running back Christopher Brown Jr., tight end Collin Moore and offensive linemen Jake Curhan, Will Craig and Valentino Daltoso all were ruled out of action, as were linebacker OLB Braxten Croteau and reserve nose guard Stanley McKenzie.

Cal announced an hour before kickoff that said one player tested positive and others are being held out because of contact tracing protocols.

Only center Michael Saffell and guard McKade Mettauer among the starting offensive line will play today.

Cal’s season opener at Washington two weeks ago was canceled when one Cal defensive lineman tested positive for COVID-19 and the entire defensive line position was forced into quarantine through contact tracing.

The defensive line is back intact this week, but the O-line will rely on backups as the Bears (0-1) seek their first victory of the season against the Beavers (0-2).
