Penn State’s Paterno injured in practice collision
STATE COLLEGE, PA. (AP) - Penn State says Joe Paterno was hospitalized and undergoing tests on his right arm and hip after a player ran into him during practice Sunday.
Paterno was admitted Sunday evening to Mount Nittany Medical Center after he walked away from the collision with a receiver who was running a route, the school announced Monday.
The 84-year-old Paterno said in a statement: “I expect to be back at practice soon. I’m doing fine; tell everyone not to worry about me.”
Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli, Penn State director of athletic medicine, said that it doesn’t appear surgery will be required.
The school said Monday afternoon that Paterno could be released in the next 24 hours.
Paterno conducted Monday morning’s coaches meeting by phone from the hospital, according to Penn State.
Football media day, originally scheduled for Thursday, was postponed until Aug. 15.
