Cal announces Allen out for Friday

Cal has just officially announced that standout receiver Keenan Allen is indeed out for Friday’s game with a left knee injury suffered late in a game against Utah last Saturday.

Here’s a report from the Bay Area News Group.

That’s a big loss for the Bears as Allen, a junior, is the team’s most consistent offensive threat, ranking fourth in the conference in receptions per game at 6.7 (61 total) and seventh in receiving yards per game at 79.3 (714 total).

A statement from Cal coach Jeff Tedford said only that Allen will not play against UW and that his status beyond that is uncertain.

Cal’s next leading receiver is freshman Chris Harper, who has 29 receptions for 380 yards this season and had seven last week against Utah.

Adding to Cal’s injury woes at that spot, freshman Bryce Treggs — the team’s third-leading receiver with 21 catches — is considered questionable with an ankle injury.

This all probably makes it that much more likely Cal will try to lean on a running game that ranks fifth in the Pac-12 at 168.8 yards per game, and that much more imperative for UW to stop that running game and make Cal rely on a suddenly thin receiving corps to make plays.
