STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State's athletic department is vigorously defending itself against a report questioning the quality of medical care for football players.
In a story in the latest edition of Sports Illustrated, two orthopedic professors - one still at the university and the other a former chair - attributed the removal of longtime team doctor Wayne Sebastianelli to reasons other than the quality of care.
The report also called into question the methods of head trainer Tim Bream, who took the job at his alma mater last year after serving as trainer for the NFL's Chicago Bears.
An athletic department statement said the characterization of medical care ``as anything other than the highest quality is erroneous.''
Sebastianelli remains director of athletic medicine, which oversees the football program and new team doctor.
