UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State's Michigan-born quarterback is not going to play Saturday against Michigan.

Freshman Rob Bolden's mother, Tonya McNeal, said today that her son failed a concussion test Sunday.

She said he will be re-evaluated Wednesday, but McNeal doubts Bolden will be cleared to play against the Wolverines.

"He really wants to play against Michigan -- his heart is just going to be really broken," McNeal said from her home in Southfield, Mich. "He failed that concussion test, which is not good.

"I think it's best for him if they sit him down this week. Hopefully, he can play next week [against Northwestern]."

Bolden was injured in the second quarter of the game Saturday against Minnesota. He was pulled from game and replaced by former walk-on Matt McGloin, who likely will start against Michigan.
