Penn State releases depth chart for Temple game

Penn State released its depth chart on Monday night for Saturday's game against Temple with the Nittany Lions starting quarterback listed as Rob Bolden "OR" Matt McGloin for the third straight week. In Saturday's 27-11 home loss to Alabama, Bolden was 11-for-29 for 144 passing yards with one interception and McGloin went 1-for-10 and did not register any passing yards.

On the injury report, starting right tackle Chima Okoli, who was banged up on Penn State's first drive against Alabama, is listed as "probable" with a leg injury for Saturday. Reserve tackle Mike Farrell is "doubtful" with a knee injury. He got hurt in the opener against Indiana State.

There were no major changes to the depth chart. Wide receiver and former West Catholic star Curtis Drake is listed as a backup to starter Shawney Kersey after not being listed the first two weeks while recovering from his leg injury. Drake played against the Crimson Tide but did not touch the ball.

Anthony Fera is listed as the backup kicker to Evan Lewis, with Fera handling kickoffs, and the backup punter to Alex Butterworth. Butterworth started against Alabama and punted three times for an average of 39.3 yards but Fera also punted three times and averaged 47 yards. 

Running back Stephfon Green, who was not with the team on Saturday, is not listed on the depth chart for the third straight week. He was charged with furnishing alcohol to two minors last Tuesday for an incident that occured in July.
