Official Penn State Injury Report

TE Garry Gilliam - knee - out

DE Pete Massaro - knee - out

LB Michael Mauti - knee - out

WR Derek Moye - foot - (listed as possible) out

RB Pat Zerbe - knee - out

Notes:No changes this week. But some unofficial stuff is that Silas Redd is dealing with stingers. While I have little doubt in the kid's toughness and ability to play through pretty much anything, be mindful of how many carries Redd gets this week. He didn't get very many last week (18) relative to his previous weeks' workload. The addition of Stephfon Green and possibly Brandon Beachum into the lineup, along with primary backup Curtis Dukes, should come in handy against a decent Illinois defensive front this week.

Moving on.

Well, well, lookie here. Matt McGloin is finally going into the game as an official starting quarterback again. How he'll do against a defense with actual warm blood running through its vessels remains to be seen, but we can only hope he torches the Illini defensive backfield. Running back is looking crowded once again, which is a good thing. Stephfon Green should see time on passing downs. I'll be interested to see how Brandon Beachum is utilized, if at all, this week. I've also formally added Curtis Drake back into the lineup, since he's been on the field a few times the past few weeks. Other than that, it's all about the same.
