California tight end Spencer Ladner will not be ready for the start of fall practice, according to coach Jeff Tedford. Ladner is healing up from a knee injury and is slated to miss the first three weeks of camp.
Ladner will be behind, but is certainly capable of getting himself into the tight end mix by the time the season gets underway. The tight end spot could be a very valuable one in the success of new quarterback Zach Maynard. Ladner could help with that success.
