Penn State could be without two of its starting linebackers against Temple on Saturday.
Brandon Bell, a senior captain, entered Beaver Stadium on crutches and it appears he will not play against the Owls.

Meanwhile, Jason Cabinda missed last week’s game against Pitt and his status remains questionable for the noon kickoff. Nyeem Wartman-White, the middle linebacker, will enter Saturday as the only starting linebacker at 100 percent.
Franklin said MLB Jason Cabinda may play with a club on his hand, up to the doctors on whether he will be available.

The Nittany Lions were thin at linebacker entering the season. Jake Cooper, a sophomore, is listed as Bell’s backup on the depth chart, while Manny Bowen was in Cabinda’s spot. Freshman Cam Brown also got a handful of snaps against Pitt last week.
