Nittany Lions lose WR Moye for two games

That uncertainty over the status of Penn State wide receiver Derek Moye?

It’s been resolved, but not in a positive way for the Nittany Lions.

The school announced Thursday afternoon that Moye will miss the next two games with a foot injury.  The release states that Moye broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot Tuesday evening when he slipped on stairs in his apartment after dinner.

No surgery will be required, and he could return in time for the Oct. 29 game against Illinois.

Through six games, Moye leads the Nittany Lions in receptions (28), receiving yards (485) and receiving touchdowns (three).

    Sad to hear of this. He’s a great receiver (reminds me of Joe Juerevicous (spelling ?) – tall and fast) and a nice guy. Moye really wanted a 1,000-yard season. It will be difficult to achieve, now. Worse for PSU, now McGloin has nobody to throw to.

    The young receivers have to step up. And they will. Injuries are part of the game. Wish Him a speedy and complete recovery.

    I can’t imagine how good Penn State would be if they had a legit QB. Picture Russell Wilson at PSU.

    Penn State is too legit to quit. With an offensive coordinator as fantastic as Jay Paterno, they could defeat the remaining teams on their schedule fielding only 9 players on offense.

    Galen Hall is the offensive coordinator, Jay Paterno is the quarterback coach. Please try to know what your talking about.

    Well there goes a chance to play in a bowl this year, the next two games are for lack of a better phase the easy ones Purdue & Northwestern. Man just when I thought the Offense couldn’t get any worse the other playmaker on the team gets hurt.
