Lee Hopes For Justice At Penn State

IRVING, Texas --Linebacker Sean Lee is focused this week on the Buffalo Bills and hopefully playing Sunday with a cast on his injured wrist.

But only two years removed from the Penn State football program, Lee -- a team captain for the Nittany Lions -- was understandably shocked and saddened to hear news of former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's child molestation charges and head coach Joe Paterno's impending retirement in the wake of the alleged scandal.

"Obviously it's extremely sad, shocking situation," Lee said after practice Wednesday. "You just pray for all those children and for all the victims. Obviously, you pray for all the families and you just hope justice is done. Hopefully once justice is done, Penn State can move on and be the great university that it has been.

"There's a lot of great people up there and I'm very proud to have come from Penn State."

Asked about Paterno's decision to step down at age 84 after 46 years as head coach, Lee said, "I'm not really going to speculate on that. I just know it's a tough situation with him right now. You feel for the victims."
