Penn State’s Drake breaks leg

Whoever wins Penn State’s quarterback derby, he will have one less wide receiver to throw to for awhile.

According to a Scout.com report, Curtis Drake suffered a broken leg during practice Monday and is expected to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks.

This is yet another offseason obstacle that the wideout will have to face. Before breaking his leg, Drake was dealing with a stress fracture in his left foot as well as a disturbing the peace citation following a scuffle with a Penn State basketball player.

Drake was expected to have an increased role in the Nittany Lions’ aerial attack this fall. Now, based on the initial time frame, Drake may be able to return for the game against Temple Sept. 25 at the earliest. Wideout is one of the positions of depth on offense for PSU, however, so the question under center likely remains the biggest concern for head coach Joe Paterno during preseason camp.
