INJURY REPORT: Sidelined Players

Get an update on the injuries the Penn State football squad is dealing with through spring drills.

Penn State has some players coping with injuries this spring. Here's the latest on who is sidelined:

• WR Devon Smith: Smith is riding around on a motorized cart. He reportedly broke a bone in his left foot.

• LB Khairi Fortt: As we reported previously, Fortt sustained what has been described as a "minor" knee injury in the Coaches Clinic practice session. As of Friday, he was doing very light work — such as the team stretch — but still was not cleared to be in pads. He was wearing a sleave (as opposed to a brace) on his right knee.

• CB Curtis Drake: Drake is currently sideline, but it's unclear what the issue is with him at this time. A team source insists it is nothing serious. Like Fortt, Drake has been wearing workout gear at practice but not full pads.

• DB Adrian Amos has been out of action recently with a minor groin injury.

• RB Bill Belton was held out of Friday's scrimmage action. He too was in workout gear but not pads. It was not clear what his injury was.

• DT Evan Hailes has not participated in spring practice thus far. He had missed action earlier in his career due to an issue with blood clots in his legs. Penn State has not confirmed whether his latest problem has to do with clotting (or not).

• OL Mark Arcidiacono was first seen by FOS in a boot immobilizer at PSU's Pro Day in mid-March. At this point, he is still being held out of practice. The extent of his injury is unknown at this stage.
