BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -California running back Jahvid Best will miss at least one game with a dislocated left elbow, but the versatile speedster won't require surgery.
Best was injured in the third quarter of the Golden Bears' 42-7 victory over Colorado State last Saturday. The sophomore is third in the nation with 215.5 all-purpose yards per game, and third in the Pac-10 with 105.3 yards rushing.
Best, who fumbled two times while rushing for 85 yards against the Rams, was hurt while putting out his arm to cushion a fall. Freshman Shane Vereen has played well in the Bears' first four games as Best's backup or his replacement in the backfield when Best lines up as a receiver.
California (3-1, 1-0 Pac-10) hosts Arizona State (2-2, 1-0) on Saturday, followed by an off week. Best hopes to be available for the Bears' trip to Arizona on Oct. 18.
