LINCOLN, Neb. — Jordan Hill and Kyle Carter are in uniform at Memorial Stadium, and they'll both be available for Penn State's game against Nebraska today.
Hill sprained his left knee last week against Purdue and Carter missed that contest as he hurt his left foot/ankle against Ohio State. Both players were listed as "day-to-day" on Penn State's injury report earlier in the week.
A senior defensive tackle, Hill was very limited at practice earlier in the week, but he participated in pregame warmups with the defensive line on Saturday. Hill has made 45 tackles, 4.5 sacks and an interception this season, and if he is unable to go or limited against the Cornhuskers, it's likely James Terry would see increased reps at the middle of the defensive line.
Meanwhile, Carter is back with the team this week after not traveling to West Lafayette, Ind. last Saturday. With eight catches for 441 yards and two touchdowns this season, the redshirt freshman has been the Nittany Lions' most productive tight end. He was practicing with the tight ends at practice this week and was a full participant in pregame drills.
