Ca trace only

I was wondering if it is possible to given only the Ca trace backbone coordinates of a protein structure to guess the missing N, C, O coordinates along the backbone?
I tried with psfgen, but it doesn't work.

Is it possible to minimize a protein structure using NAMD with just the Ca coordinates? I didn't think so because I can't even create a proper psf file with just those coordinates and I know the psf file is required for NAMD.
thanks for any insight.
