Best to miss bowl game for Cal

BERKELEY – California star tailback Jahvid Best will not play in the Poinsettia Bowl as he continues his recovery from a frightening fall and concussion that sidelined him last month.

Coach Jeff Tedford said Wednesday that Best is feeling better since the injury against Oregon State that knocked him out and left him with a sore back on Nov. 7. But Tedford says there’s not enough time to get him back into “game-ready form” before the game next Wednesday against Utah.

Best missed the final three games of the regular season and has not practiced since the injury.



Best is one of the most dynamic running backs in the country. He finished the season with 16 touchdowns and 867 yards rushing. He has not decided whether to return to Cal for his senior season.
