Reports: Moye sustains foot injury

Penn State standout wide receiver Derek Moye sustained a foot injury on Tuesday and his status for Saturday's game against Purdue is uncertain, Fight On State, a scout.com affiliate that covers the program, reported Wednesday night.

The report, which cited "a team source," said Moye did not practice on Wednesday and that the senior co-captain was wearing a protective boot.

The Altoona Mirror, citing "a source close to the team," reported that Moye fell down some steps Tuesday night and it is his right foot that he injured. The source told the Mirror that Moye did not seem too concerned about the injury.

Penn State sports information director Jeff Nelson told the Inquirer on Wednesday night that he did not have any information on the reports and would check with the team's medical staff on Thursday morning.

Moye leads the Nittany Lions (5-1) with 28 receptions and 485 receiving yards to go along with three touchdowns.
