Stanford right tackle Matt Kopa fractured his foot against Washington State and will be out six to eight weeks.
The Cardinal already were replacing two starters from 2008's line and used a pair of redshirt freshmen against the Cougars.
Senior Chris Marinelli will move from left guard to right tackle when Stanford visits Wake Forest on Saturday. Junior Andy Phillips, an 11-game starter in 2008, will start at left guard. There's also the possibility talented but oft-injured senior Allen Smith could get back into the picture.
