Matt McGloin Injury: Penn State QB Leaves Field

Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin left the game against Virginia in the second quarter after being hit on his throwing elbow for the second drive in a row. It happened first on a third-and-four pass attempt that fell incomplete.

McGloin took a knee on the field as trainers checked him, but had to be substituted by freshman quarterback Steven Bench. The Nittany Lions went for it on fourth-and-four and Bench was sacked in his only play before McGloin was brought back in the game.

But on the next drive, there was a similar play that sent McGloin to the locker room. McGloin left the game having completed eight of his 14 passes for 57 yards and a touchdowns.

Bench is back in the game for Penn State in his second series with less than four minutes to go until halftime. The Nittany Lions lead, 7-3.
