Penn State starting defensive linemen Maurice Evans and Abe Koroma reportedly practiced Monday for the first time since police found marijuana in their apartment Sept. 2. Two sources told the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane that the two players practiced, though there's no word yet on whether they'll play Saturday night against No. 22 Illinois (ABC, 8 p.m. ET). Head coach Joe Paterno addresses the media today at 12:30 p.m. ET.

Evans and Koroma were charged last week with misdemeanor marijuana possession. Penn State's Office of Judicial Affairs has yet to discipline the two players, but expect them back on the field soon -- if not Saturday, then next week against Purdue.
