STATE COLLEGE, Pa. ó Joe Paterno was released from the hospital Tuesday, two days after getting blindsided at Penn State practice by a player and injuring his right shoulder and pelvis.
The school said in a statement the 84-year-old coach was looking forward to returning to practice Wednesday.
“It’s time for everyone to turn the attention to the team,” Paterno said.”
No surgery was required for Paterno, and that “precautionary measures” were complete. The team did not offer any more details about the injuries.
The Hall of Fame coach spoke with his assistants Tuesday.
“He’s fine. … It turned into a little work session,” Jay Paterno said with a chuckle earlier Tuesday in a phone interview. “I wish I was as tough as he is.”
