Cal’s Jackson might not play against Stanford

When Cal takes on Stanford Saturday in the Big Game, it might not be with its biggest offensive threat. Receiver DeSean Jackson, who has 60 catches for 681 yards and five touchdowns this season, is still feeling the affects of a severely bruised quadriceps during a second-quarter punt return in Cal’s loss at Washington on Nov. 17. “I’m feeling pretty good, but still not back to where I want to be,” Jackson said. “Closer to game time, I’ll see how I feel. … Every year I’ve played in the Big Game, it’s been one of those great years. It would be good to keep that tradition going on. Right now, I just want to protect my knee from whatever it is.”
