Penn State Football: Breneman Sidelined With Injury
Penn State football coach James Franklin announced Monday that tight end Adam Breneman will be out indefinitely with an injury.
The program did not go into specifics regarding the injury but the announcement is a drastic change from usual Franklin protocol of not addressing any aspects of team health and injury. That being said Franklin has commented on changing his stance on injury reporting slightly which means Monday's announcement is not an automatic indicator of severity.
Breneman made 15 receptions for 186 yards and three touchdowns during his true freshman season, hauling in a scoring strike in each of the last three games.
His 68-yard touchdown catch and run in Penn State's big 31-24 win at No. 14 Wisconsin was the Nittany Lions' longest play from scrimmage last season.
Penn State scrimmaged at Beaver Stadium this past weekend although there is no word on when the injury occurred. Breneman tore his right ACL prior to coming to Penn State but has been mostly healthy since arriving on campus aside from a few spring practice bumps and bruises his freshman season.
Breneman was last seen on Sunday at team photo day and did not look unhealthy although not all injuries are as easy to spot nor are all aliments football related.
While Penn State can hardly afford to deal with injuries on an already thin roster, Breneman's situation at least impacts a position where the Nittany Lions have a buffer since there is plenty of talent at tight end.
