Best tops worrisome California injury list

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

California will face a key game against Arizona State on Saturday without standout running back Jahvid Best, and at least two other starters are going to be out for extended periods of time.

Best dislocated his elbow against Colorado State but the extent of his injury won't be known until he has an MRI this morning. Cal has a bye after the Sun Devils come to town and visit Arizona on Oct. 18, the earliest date Best could return.

Also on the injury list: hard-luck defensive end Rulon Davis, who suffered a leg injury that will sideline him six weeks, and guard Chris Guarnero, who's out for the year with a toe injury.

Davis missed half of the 2006 and 2007 seasons due to injuries.

The Bears' offensive line is already missing tackle Mike Tepper, who's been slow to recover from a pectoral injury.
