STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State leading rebounder Jeff Brooks is day to day with a dislocated right shoulder, and his status is unclear for Sunday's game against Michigan.

Brooks hurt the shoulder late in the first half of Tuesday's 68-51 loss at Illinois. A team physician said X-rays Thursday revealed no damage to the shoulder joint or bones.

The team trainer said he was surprised with Brooks' range of motion, and that swelling and pain for Brooks was minimal. The team will monitor his progress before determining his availability when Penn State (12-9, 5-5 Big Ten) hosts the Wolverines (13-9, 3-6).

Brooks leads the team with 7.2 rebounds per game. He's second in scoring at 13.2 points behind guard Talor Battle.
