STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – The quarterback derby still isn’t over at Penn State.

Coach Joe Paterno today declined to name a starter for Saturday’s season opener against Indiana State, other than saying that both Rob Bolden and Matt McGloin would play.

Paterno said it didn’t make a difference which quarterback started — that the position isn’t one of his concerns right now.

Paterno, 84, walked into the Beaver Stadium media room today with a cane.  He said he’s feeling better since accidentally getting leveled in practice three weeks ago by a receiver, though it was “50-50″ on whether he would be on the sideline this Saturday.

The hit injured Paterno’s shoulder and pelvis.  He wants to be on the sideline, but his doctors are urging caution.
