ASU kicker Weber expected to play at Cal despite broken bone in his left wrist

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona State placekicker/punter Thomas Weber has a broken bone in his left wrist but is expected to play at California on Saturday.

Weber showed up at practice yesterday afternoon with a cast on his left arm. He said he wasn't sure when he was injured but thinks it may have been on a blocked punt in a loss to Georgia on September 20th in Sun Devil Stadium.

Weber won the 2007 Lou Groza Award as the nation's top placekicker.

He participated in practice and said he was able to catch snaps despite the cast.

Weber says he plans to wear a splint at Cal, which presumably would make it easier for him to handle the ball.

The kicking game has been a trouble spot in Arizona State's two losses.

Besides the blocked punt by Georgia, the Sun Devils lost to UNLV when the Rebels blocked a Weber field goal attempt in overtime.
