Evans, Quarless and Koroma out

Joe Paterno just announced that defensive end Maurice Evans, tight end Andrew Quarless and defensive tackle Abe Koroma are not going to play this Saturday against Oregon State for their alleged involvement in a Tuesday night incident at their Nittany Apartments residence. On the radio show "Nittany Lion Hotline," Paterno said that he won't make a decision on the players until he "gets all the information." A.J. Wallace, who is also a resident of the apartment where a small amount of marijuana was found by Penn State police, is going to play, Paterno said. The coach said the cornerback was not involved.
