STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Injured tailback Bill Belton was nowhere to be seen at Wednesday afternoon's open practice, while Derek Day took snaps with the first team.

Twenty minutes before practice officially started, Belton tweeted: "I trust and believe that everything happens for a reason."

Belton was believed to be in the training room while the media watched practice for 30 minutes. He sprained his left ankle Saturday against Ohio, late in the third quarter, and coach Bill O'Brien said Tuesday he remains day-to-day. If Belton doesn't practice by Friday, O'Brien said Day will get the starting nod.
