On his conference call with reporters this morning, quarterback Daryll Clark said that wide receiver Jordan Norwood practiced yesterday and went at about "80 percent." After Saturday's win over Purdue, several other players said that Norwood, who has missed that last two games with a hamstring pull, could have played had he been needed. Baring a setback it looks likely that he will be back for Saturday's game at Wisconsin.
Clark also said that coach Joe Paterno was at practice on Monday. Paterno was in obvious pain as he was forced to sit in the coaches' box for the entire game Saturday. The 81-year-old coach said after the game that his health and his status is likely going to be week-to-week from here on out.
