Penn State vs. Purdue: Derek Moye's Injury A Broken Foot

Penn State Athletics confirmed reports from Wednesday night of wide receiver Derek Moye's injury in a press release on Thursday, revealing that the senior broke his foot on Tuesday night after slipping on the stairs. The release says Moye does not need surgery on the foot, but is expected to miss the Nittany Lions' next two games against Purdue this Saturday at Beaver Stadium, and at Northwestern next week in Evanston, Ill.

Moye is Penn State's leading receiver by far. He has nine more catches, 260 more yards and two more touchdowns than any Lion receiver this season. Expect starters Justin Brown and Devon Smith to slip up the depth chart with him out, and backups Shawney Kersey, Allen Robinson and Brandon Moseby-Felder to see extra time.

Also, keep an eye on how Moye's injury affects quarterback Matthew McGloin's performance. Many believe McGloin has earned a bit of an edge in Penn State quarterback competition, but without Moye, McGloin's favorite target, there's a chance Moye could regress a bit.
