Joe Paterno injured after being knocked down by player.

 Here's the news you really don't want to hear if your a Penn State fan. Joe Paterno  was run over by a Nittany Lion player during Sunday practice.

"Coach Joe Paterno was at Mount Nittany Medical Center on Monday, where he underwent tests to determine the extent of his injuries he suffered when he was hit by a player running a drill during practice Sunday. He likely will not need surgery, according to Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli, Penn State's director of athletic medicine."

Reports from Chris Folwer state that Paterno suffered "a hairline fracture to his pelvis and shoulder" that won't require surgery.

Best wishes for JoePa during his recovery period.
