Matt McGloin Reportedly Held Out Of Practice

Penn State quarterback Matthew McGloin attended practice on Sunday but did not participate following a reported altercation with teammate Curtis Drake after practice on Saturday according to Bob Flounders of the Harrisburg Patriot-News.

McGloin's father, Paul, told Flounders on Saturday that McGloin was treated for a possible seizure and possible concussion, but on Sunday, Flounders reported the prognosis is looking better for Matt.

As part of his treatment at Mount Nittany Medical Center, Paul McGloin said a CT scan and an MRI were performed on his son and the results were encouraging. Paul told The Patriot-News the tests "came back negative,'', adding, "That's good news, when I heard that. It's a big relief.''

Matt's playing status ahead of the Nittany Lions' Jan. 2 matchup against Houston in the TicketCity Bowl remains unclear. The sophomore threw for 1,571 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions this duty in splitting time with Rob Bolden at quarterback much of the season. McGloin started all three games following former coach Joe Paterno's firing on Nov. 9.
