Paul Jones on Penn State status: 'I don't know'

A report Wednesday morning indicated that quarterback/tight end Paul Jones was no longer with the Penn State Nittany Lions football team. Jones was reached on campus Wednesday afternoon by The Daily Collegian and said he didn't know where he stood regarding his place on the team.

Starting quarterback Matt McGloin said that Jones was not at practice on Tuesday, and wasn't aware of Jones' status with the team and coaching staff.

"Whether he comes back or whether he decides to leave, I wish him the best of luck," McGloin said.

Jones arrived in State College two years ago with a lot of hype, but academic issues prevented him from competing right away. After losing the battle for the starting quarterback job to McGloin in the spring, Jones had been moved to tight end by the coaching staff to better use his athleticism. He made his debut at tight end against Navy, catching one pass for 7 yards, but did not record a catch the next week against Temple.
