According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Penn State campus police seized a small amount of marijuana from an apartment belonging to four Nittany Lions football players after investigating a loud party there Tuesday night. Police obtained a search warrant for the apartment, which is shared by defensive end Maurice Evans, defensive tackle Abe Koroma, cornerback A.J. Wallace and tight end Andrew Quarless.

No charges have been filed as of Thursday afternoon, and Lt. Bill Moerschbacher of the Penn State university police told ESPN.com in an e-mail that the investigation is still ongoing. Penn State team officials are looking into the situation and as of Thursday morning, the players' status with the team had not changed. A source told the Philadelphia Inquirer that all four players didn't practice Wednesday. The search warrant listed only Wallace and Quarless present at the time of the search.

Evans and Koroma are listed as starters on this week's depth chart, while Wallace is a potential starter.

The Inquirer's Jeff McLane obtained a copy of the university police log for the incident:
