Golden Nuggets: Best Out Of Hospital, Will Miss at Least One Game

Update: JO adds a few more details.

Cal coach Jeff Tedford said Best’s parents took him to their home in Vallejo. Tedford visited Best in the hospital late Saturday night and talked with him on the phone today. He said Best was groggy and tired Saturday night, partly because he had some pain medication. Tedford said Best was in good spirits Sunday.

Best update straight from the AP.  I'm not sure if this is all Tedford had to say after practice, but I'll keep you updated with anything else I hear.

BERKELEY, Calif.(AP) -- California star tailback Jahvid Best has been released from the hospital and will miss at least one game after sustaining a concussion on a terrifying fall in the end zone.

Best spent the night at Highland General Hospital in Oakland for observation and tests after landing on the back of his head in the end zone and being briefly knocked unconscious in the Golden Bears' 31-14 loss to Oregon State on Saturday night.

The school says results from a CT scan and X-rays came back normal. Best will not play Saturday against Arizona. His status for future games will continue to be evaluated. This was the second straight week Best sustained a concussion.

After the jump I have Cal-Arizona tv info (Versus, 4pm), the early spread for this weekend's game (Az by 2), Tedford's postgame reaction, reactions from players to Best's injury, and more.  Tomorrow I'll wrap up what was otherwise a decent weekend for Cal sports (great job volleyball!).
