TicketCity Bowl 2012: Devon Still Misses Practice, Rob Bolden Likely To Start

Penn State quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno told the Associated Press's Genaro C. Armas on Friday that sophomore quarterback Rob Bolden is likely to start for the Nittany Lions against Houston in the TicketCity Bowl on Monday. The team is hoping Matthew McGloin, injured in an on-campus altercation with teammate Curtis Drake on Dec. 17, will be available for emergency duty.

Paterno also had the following to say about his father, former head coach Joe Paterno, recovering from a fractured pelvis and undergoing treatment for lung cancer.

"Joe never sits around and complains about what's happened to him," his son, Jay, said Friday. "We're sitting there on his birthday and he said, 'Look, I've got 17 healthy grandkids, I've got give five healthy kids' ... Joe's always a guy who looks at the bright side (of) everything."

Armas reports defensive tackle and Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year Devon Still missed practice with a turf toe injury, but is expected to be ready to go by the time the bowl game rolls around.

Interim head coach Tom Bradley tweeted earlier Friday that the team will attend the Dallas Mavericks vs. Toronto Raptors basketball game.
