The Penn State football program had several players miss practice on Tuesday with minor injuries.

With 11 days until the 2012 season opener, the Penn State football program is no different from any other squad going through training camp, especially with regard to dealing with injuries. The Nittany Lions certainly have their share of them.

Several players sat out Tuesday's practice as a way of dealing with the bumps and bruises according to a StateCollege.com report.

Here are a list of the players that didn't take the field on Tuesday:

Wide receiver Shawney Kersey (ankle)
Wide receiver Malik Golden (hip flexor)
Defensive end Brad Bars (ankle)
Tight end Garry Gilliam (quad tweak)
Defensive end Pete Massaro (precautionary)
Running back Derek Day (precautionary)

With the exception of senior safety Jake Fagnano, who continues to miss practice with a hamstring injury, none of the other players are deemed to be seriously hurt, and as a result, they should be return to the practice field soon.
