Joe Paterno fell and fractured his pelvis yesterday -- this according to a source close to his family.

The 84-year-old former Penn State football coach -- who's currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment for lung cancer -- was admitted to a local hospital after taking the tumble at his home, but will not need surgery.

He is expected to make a full recovery.
