BERKELEY, California – California quarterback Chase Garbers on Friday night lost 24-17 to Arizona State in the second quarter with a right shoulder injury.
Head coach Justin Wilcox had no information on Garbers' injury in his post-game press conference. He said he expects more details on Monday.
Garbers injured himself when he landed his throwing hand on a scrimmage at the end of the second quarter for the 15th-ranked Golden Bears. The redshirt sophomore – completing 9 of 12 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown – was helped out on the field by giving high fives to teammates with his left hand and going directly into the locker room.
The Bears struggled to generate anything in the passing game after Garbers got hurt and was replaced by Devon Modster.
Modster completed 5-of-1
"Honestly, I think I played awful," Modster said. "I could play a lot better, I just missed a lot of receivers."
Garbers was coming out of his best game at Cal, throwing for 357 yards and four touchdowns last week in Mississippi.
The Bears' loss left the Pac-12 unbeaten before the end of September.
