Penn State Depth Chart & Injury Report: Iowa

Will D'Anton Lynn be 100 percent for this week?

Just a minor change to our Friday schedules. Jeff's injury report post has merged with my depth chart post. It's not really a big deal, but in case you're wondering.

Official Penn State Injury Report

TB Brandon Beachum - foot - possible

TE Garry Gilliam - knee - out

CB D’Anton Lynn - head - possible

DE Pete Massaro - knee - out

LB Michael Mauti - knee - out

RB Pat Zerbe - knee - out

Notes: The two "possible" on this list are pretty big if they do pan out. Lynn is a very important starter, possibly the most important on this defense next to Devon Still. Going up against a rather unorthodox (for Iowa) passing offense this week (no-huddle, pass-first), Penn State will need all the pass defense it can get. Also noticeably absent from this list is Stephon Morris, who missed most of the second half last week with an ankle. If he returns, then the entire secondary is at least available. Beachum is also a nice addition to the backfield this week, though it's tough to gauge how well Curtis Dukes actually performed since it was against Indiana. Still, Dukes played well last week, and there's never anything negative in getting back a quality power running back. Another player missing, but unlikely to play, is Curtis Drake. He has made appearances the past few weeks, but his leg injury apparently regressed. Much of this info was gathered from Joe Paterno's press conference and the Thursday night call-in show.

Moving on.

Notes: I'm not entirely sure if the staff will be iffy on playing Beachum right behind Redd, but I could totally see it happening. But I tend to chart players returning from injury lower on the ladder. Stanley is no long sharing the starting spot with Latimore. Nice to see Stanley stepping up this season. My assumption here is that Lynn will start. But we'll see. Bill Belton won't play this week, according to Joe Paterno. I'm not sure why, and too lazy right now (read: preoccupied with baby stuff) to look it up. But I heard somewhere that he missed practice; which would make sense. Enlighten me in the comments.
