The Patriot-News reports that McQueary got on the phone with his wide receivers today, telling them that he's in protective custody, somewhere outside of State College. Earlier today McQueary was placed on paid leave and told to stay away from Saturday's game. There's speculation that legal statutes protecting whistleblowers are complicating the matter of firing him.


McQueary added that he was, "Double-fisting it," meaning he was having two drinks at once.
