Moye To Miss Rest Of Spring With Concussion

Michigan 1

The injury bug has struck the Penn State football team once again. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ron Musselman reported on Thursday that senior wide receiver Derek Moye will be held out of the rest of spring practices after suffering a concussion earlier this week.

Moye led the Penn State receiving corps last year with 53 receptions for 885 yards, while accounting for eight touchdowns. He emerged as the go-to receiver of both Rob Bolden and Matt McGloin after a slow start of  catching 11 balls, only one for a touchdown, in the first three games of the season.

Two weeks ago, the Nittany Lions lost wide receiver Curtis Drake and defensive end Pete Massaro to season-ending injuries. At last Friday’s spring press conference, Coach Joe Paterno added that tight end Gary Gilliam is out for the year due to complications from last year’s ACL tear. Defensive ends Jack Crawford and Eric Latimore were also limited in spring practice due to injuries.

Spring practice concludes with the Blue-White game, which will take place on April 16th.

With Drake and Moye out for the rest of spring (Drake for the year), receivers like Shawney Kersey and Brandon Moseby-Felder will get a chance to make a statement before summer practice starts and Justin Brown can cement himself as the second receiver or the 1B to Moye’s 1A.
