Linebacker Pat Maynor, who leads Stanford with 6.4 tackles per game, might not play in the Big Game on Saturday at California, though it's hard to get a feel for what his status is from coach Jim Harbaugh.
"To be honest with you, I'm not really comfortable talking about the status of injuries," Harbaugh said. "Not required to. We'll see how it progresses out with treatment and this week of practice."
Harbaugh did describe the injury as "soft tissue on his knee that he is working to rehab. Some swelling." The San Francisco Chronicle said the injury was a "knee contusion."
The injury was bad enough that Maynor, who's logged 30 career starts, didn't play against USC. He was replaced in the lineup by junior Will Powers.
