Riley Goes Down with Knee Injury

Kevin Riley after Saturday's loss at Oregon State.

Senior quarterback Kevin Riley goes down with an apparent knee injury in the first quarter against Oregon State...

Cal senior QB Kevin Riley was tackled after a third down completion to Marvin Jones in the first quarter. During the tackle, Riley's left knee looked to have been hyper-extended. He was helped off the field and was unable to walk on it on the sidelines.

Riley -- in a brace and with crutches -- was carted off the field to have it examined. There has been no official word from Cal concerning the extent of the injury.

"Right now, it looks a little bit more serious than just your everyday sprained knee," Cal head coach Jeff Tedford said following the game.

"He was in a lot of pain. He came off the field with tears in his eyes, and I'm sure that has a lot to do with his disappointment. He felt like it was pretty significant. Kevin is a tough guy. It's unfortunate."

Tedford says they won't know the extent of the injury until Riley undergoes an MRI, most likely on Monday.
