Plushenko withdrew from last month's European Championships, and coach Alexei Mishin later said he had disk-replacement surgery in Israel.

Gilliam played tight end in 2010 and '12 after redshirting his freshman season. He sustained a torn ACL in the fifth game of the 2010 season and missed all of 2011. An infection delayed his surgery and rehabilitation. In eight starts last season, Gilliam had seven receptions for 65 yards. After the season, the 6-6, 290-pound Gilliam was moved to tackle, as the Nittany Lions lost two offensive-line starters to graduation but return three tight ends.
