As expected, Penn State standout wide receiver Derek Moye has been ruled out for Saturday's game at Northwestern, according to the team's injury report released Monday evening. Moye broke the fifth metarsal bone in his left foot on Oct. 11 when he slipped on stairs in his apartment. The initial prognosis was that he would miss this past Saturday's game against Purdue and Saturday's game against Northwestern.

Redshirt sophomore Brandon Moseby-Felder is slated as the starter in Moye's place. Moseby-Felder started against Purdue on Saturday and caught two passes from Rob Bolden for 40 yards.

Penn State also released its depth chart on Monday night. It didn't consist of any major changes, with Rob Bolden "OR" Matt McGloin listed as the starting quarterback for the eighth consecutive week. 

At running back, Curtis Dukes has officially jumped Brandon Beachum as Silas Redd's backup. Beachum is listed as the third-string back and senior Stephfon Green is listed fourth.
