Key players Bill Belton, Derek Day, Sean Stanley and Donovan Smith are likely to return from injury for Penn State's game against Illinois on Saturday.
Penn State's latest injury chart listed running backs Belton and Day, left offensive tackle Smith and defensive end Stanley as probable. None of them played against Temple.
Smith has played only sparingly this year, and his return, along with the return of Day and Belton, could help spark the running game.
Belton played in the season opener against Ohio, gaining 54 yards on 13 carries. Day gained 85 yards on 26 carries.
"When we're a healthy team, we're going to be hard to stop," defensive tackle Jordan Hill said.
