Penn State's Lynn listed as 'doubtful' to play against Indiana

Penn State cornerback D'Anton Lynn is listed as "doubtful" to play at Indiana on Saturday with a head/neck injury.

Lynn sustained the injury late in the third quarter of Saturday's 34-6 win against Eastern Michigan and was down for several minutes before he was strapped to a board and carted off the field. He was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center and released late Saturday afternoon with movement in all his extremities. Doctors examined his head, neck and spinal column. 

We should find out more on Lynn's status at coach Joe Paterno's weekly press conference Tuesday afternoon. 

Also on the team's injury report, backup running back Brandon Beachum is listed as "possible" with a sprained right foot that he sustained in practice last Tuesday. Reserve offensive tackle Mike Farrell is also "possible" with a knee injury.

As far as the depth chart goes, the big question remains open. For the fifth straight week, the Nittany Lions' starting quarterback is listed as Rob Bolden "OR" Matt McGloin. 

Fifth-year senior and State College native Nate Stupar is listed as the starter at outside linebacker opposite Gerald Hodges after the season-ending ACL injury to Michael Mauti on Saturday. 

With Lynn's status in doubt, Stephon Morris is listed as the starting cornerback opposite senior Chaz Powell. 

Anthony Fera is now listed as the starting placekicker and starting punter, as were his duties against Eastern Michigan on Saturday.
