STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State starting quarterback Zack Mills may miss Saturday's game against Ohio State because of the lingering effects of a concussion.
Mills' concussion was revealed Tuesday, three days after Penn State's 6-4 loss to Iowa.
Coach Joe Paterno didn't blame the injury for the team's woeful performance on offense against the Hawkeyes. The Nittany Lions managed their lowest offensive output in three years, including the fewest number of first downs in Paterno's 39-year tenure.
The concussion apparently occurred in the first half, but Mills remained in the game until the third quarter.
