QB Clark expected to be OK for Penn State's next game against Iowa

Penn State starting quarterback Daryll Clark is expected to be fine when the third-ranked Nittany Lions resume play Nov. 8 at Iowa.

Clark sustained a head injury late in the third quarter of last week's win against Ohio State. He was removed from the game with an apparent concussion, and backup Pat Devlin led Penn State's final two scoring drives.

Penn State head coach Joe Paterno said Clark sat out practice Monday but would do some light running in Tuesday's workout. The Nittany Lions have a bye this week.

"I don't think there's any question he is going to be all right when we play Iowa," Paterno said. "We're just not going to use him a lot [in practice]. I don't think he needs a lot of work."

Clark ranks 21st nationally in passing efficiency (148.5 rating) and has accounted for 19 touchdowns (11 pass, 8 rush) and only two interceptions this season.
