Brandon Beachum reportedly out for Lions

Penn State running back Brandon Beachum won't be available for Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan, both the Daily Collegian and Centre Daily Times are reporting.

The Daily Collegian reported that Beachum was in a walking boot after spraining his right ankle in Tuesday's practice. He did not break any bones.

Beachum, a junior, is second on the team in rushing with 81 yards on 21 carries. He converted a key fourth down at Temple on Saturday that led to the winning touchdown.

Without Beachum and with Stephfon Green still in Joe Paterno's dog house, expect Silas Redd to get the bulk of the carries this week.
