MT @CalRivals With Cochran already out, Brazinski will start at center for the Bears in place of Adcock & Tyndall will likely back him up.— GoldenBlogs (@GoldenBlogs) October 5, 2013
Jared Goff is taking snaps from Mark Brazisnki in pregame warmups. Looks like he will start at center #CalFootball— Hunter Hewitt (@HunterHewitt) October 5, 2013
Sonny Dykes just commented to Todd McKim on #Cal radio that Brazinski will start in Adcock's place— GoldenBlogs (@GoldenBlogs) October 5, 2013
Brazinski was seen taking pregame snaps with Jared Goff, and is the number two center on the depth chart, so expect to see him start at center in place of Adcock.
Bill Tyndall will back up Brazinski at center. Matt Cochran is still out due to an ankle injury and would be a candidate for the center position when he returns.
Full statement from Cal Media Relations:
Junior offensive lineman Chris Adcock will miss the remainder of the 2013 campaign after injuring his knee in practice on Wednesday. Adcock started each of the team's first four games at center this season. He has played in 19 games with 15 starts during his collegiate career that began at Cal in 2010.
