Penn State-Oregon State notes

Folks, the Athletic Department just released it's weekly press, um, release. There is only one additional injury. Reserve tackle Ako Poti is possible for Saturday's game with a knee injury. As far as the depth chart goes there were a few additional changes that I noticed.

1. True freshman DeOn'tae (God, I'm going to hate spelling that name for the next four years) Pannell is listed behind Gerald Cadogen at left tackle. Starting right tackle Dennis Landolt was slotted there last week.
2. Andrew Quarless OR Andrew Szczerba is listed as the backup to tight end Mickey Shuler.

4. Defensive end Aaron Maybin is back on the depth chart listed behind left end Maurice Evans. On Saturday, Paterno said Maybin's omission was because the coach was waiting on grades.
