So much for riding out the rest of this spring practice season without any more injury drama. Senior Derek Moye, Penn State's best receiver, has reportedly sustained a concussion that will force him to miss the rest of spring practice. Via Ron Musselman:
A source said today that wide receiver Derek Moye suffered a concussion in practice this week.

He is expected to miss the rest of spring drills, which conclude April 16 with the Blue-White spring game.
There are only two things to gather from this.

1. We hope Moye is okay, and recovers quickly and fully.

2. This should give more younger receivers more reps the rest of the spring. Guys like Shawney Kersey and Brandon Felder have been around for a while, but haven't been very active on the field. This should offer up the kind of opportunity they've been looking for.

Maybe now the team can put the injury bug behind it? That's what we thought last week.
