Sore leg sends Paterno, 81, into press box at halftime
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Joe Paterno moved to the press box for the second half of Penn State's game Saturday against Temple.
The 81-year-old Paterno has complained of a sore right leg. He walked slowly along the sidelines in the first half as the Nittany Lions built a 31-0 lead.
A team spokesman said Paterno moved upstairs alongside his assistants at halftime.
JoePa complained of soreness in the leg after kicking a ball in practice several weeks ago. He was on the sidelines the entire game for the first three contests this season, but monitored practices this week from a golf cart.
Paterno also sat in the press box the final two games of the 2006 season, including the Outback Bowl, as he recovered from a left knee injury.
