According to a report on Blue and White Illustrated, and now backed up by Chris Fowler, Joe Paterno was hurt at practice yesterday. He was blindsided by 5'7" Devon Smith and has a hairline fracture on his pelvis and shoulder. Luckily, no surgery is required, according to Fowler.
This probably isn't going to sit well with some of the Penn State folks, but it's really time for Joe Pa to hang 'em up.
In 2008, he had hip replacement surgery after spraining his leg when demonstrating an onside kick. And then, of course, there is this now infamous radio interview from December. Can you hear me, Mad Dog?
