Prior to Saturday night, the injury status of Cal receiver Demetris Robertson has remained uncertain. All that was known was that Robertson missed the previous two games with what was being labeled a “soft-tissue” injury.

On Saturday night, however, Robertson posted on his Instagram account that “Surgery was a success! This injury took it’s toll on me as I battled through it majority of my freshman year up until now.

In the two games with Robertson, the Bears completed 66.7 percent of their passes for 563 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. Without Robertson, Cal completed 50 percent of its passes for 236 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
