Evans and Koroma back

Good news for you Penn State fans, starting defensive linemen Maurice Evans and Abe Koroma are back practicing with the team after close to three weeks of being suspended. Two sources close to the team told The Inquirer that Evans, an end, and Koroma, a tackle, were working with the second team defense. Whether that means they'll be available to play Saturday against Illinois remains to be seen.

Evans and Koroma back

Good news for you Penn State fans, starting defensive linemen Maurice Evans and Abe Koroma are back practicing with the team after close to three weeks of being suspended. Two sources close to the team told The Inquirer that Evans, an end, and Koroma, a tackle, were working with the second team defense. Whether that means they'll be available to play Saturday against Illinois remains to be seen.

The university's Office of Judicial Affairs is expected to conclude its investigation sometime this week and Evans and Koroma are expected to be placed on nothing worse than probation (double-secret probation??).

Joe Paterno could enlighten us further on their futures during his weekly teleconference later today.
