When Jordan Hill slowly got up and walked off the field on Saturday, it looked like his knee injury could have been serious. The good news is that it appears to be a sprain, as Hill thought after the Purdue game. He has been listed as day-to-day on the Penn State injury report for this week's game against Nebraska.
Kyle Carter is in the same boat. He injured his ankle against Ohio State and did not make the trip to Purdue despite being listed as probable.
Coach Bill O'Brien did not say much about their injuries or participation since Saturday other than to say they were able to do "some things" at practice.
Carter is the team's second-leading receiver and Hill is the team's fourth-leading tackler.
Running backs: Perhaps the most unpredictable part of Penn State's offense has been O'Brien's use of the running backs. On Saturday, for instance, Mike Zordich and Zach Zwinak got all of the carries against Purdue. Bill Belton was only in for one play. This came after a week when Zordich barely played against Ohio State.
"That'll be a competition every week," O'Brien said. "With all those guys."
