STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Laid back and unassuming, Jordan Hill could easily blend in with the thousands of other students on the Penn State campus on a normal class day.

But the senior unmistakably stands out on the football field. Not even a sore left knee can slow down the defensive tackle known for his relentless motor.

A left knee injury two weeks ago at Purdue left Penn State fans wondering how long one of the team's respected senior leaders would be out of the lineup.

But Hill powered through it last week against Nebraska and played most of the second half. He's expected to be fine for this weekend's game against Indiana.

The Hoosiers have their own tough defensive tackle in Adam Replogle, third on the team with 62 tackles.
