Penn State coach Joe Paterno announced Tuesday that free safety Nick Sukay is out for the rest of the year. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound redshirt junior left Saturday's homecoming game against Illinois with a pectoral muscle injury.
The Mount Pleasant, Pa. native will be hard replace on a team that takes 3-3 overall and 0-2 Big Ten records into this weekend's bye.
Sukay lead the team with three interceptions. He's also has 29 tackles and a forced fumble.
