Paterno unsure about linebackers

Penn State coach Joe Paterno is unsure whether he'll have his top two linebackers for Saturday's Big Ten opener against Iowa. Sean Lee sprained his left knee in the No. 5 Nittany Lions' (3-0) win last week against Temple. He missed practice Monday, and Paterno said Tuesday he remains day to day.

Navorro Bowman has returned to practice after missing most of the last three games with sore right groin. Paterno said he's not sure about his availability for Saturday, either.

But middle linebacker Josh Hull said Bowman has looked good so far. He thinks the team's leading tackler last year will be ready for the Hawkeyes (3-0).

Lee and Bowman both are listed as possible on the depth chart.
