Jaydn Ott is expected to be available on Saturday when Cal hosts Idaho at Memorial Stadium.

The Golden Bears’ star running back was injured during the third quarter of Saturday’s 14-10 loss to Auburn and missed the rest of the second half. Coach Justin Wilcox met with reporters on Tuesday and said the injury isn’t believed to be serious.

“We’re anticipating that,” Wilcox said when asked if Ott would be available. “He’s day-to-day but we’re anticipating that.”

Ott went tried to leap over an Auburn linebacker on a second-and-10 play in the third quarter, was knocked out of the air, and stayed down for a beat after he fell to the turf hard. Ott walked off on his own, but didn’t return.

Wilcox said Ott felt “great” during practice on Tuesday, but it’s unclear if he’ll be on a pitch count against Idaho.

“We don’t coach them to leave their feet like that,” Wilcox said. “Once in a while guys will make a play jumping over somebody. It kind of gets ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ but we don’t coach that technique.

“Jaydn is always a guy that’s going to try to make a play, but generally speaking leaving your feet, especially against good players, doesn’t end great. So we’ve got to learn from that one. The first thing is their health. And the second part, when the time is right, you do discuss the decision. Both those points have been made and we’re glad he’s doing better.”

Ott leads the Pac-12 with 270 rushing yards through two games. He’s the team’s top playmaker on offense, with three touchdowns on the ground.

Cal (1-1) hosts Idaho at 1 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Network.
