Penn State starting defensive end Torrence Brown suffered a painful looking right knee injury in the first quarter of the Nittany Lions' win over Georgia State. The good news for Penn State, Brown might not be out for long.
"As you guys know is that we don’t ever talk about those things," Penn State coach James Franklin said after the game, referencing injury updates. "But I know he just broke the team down in the locker room and he was out the second half so obviously we are hopeful that he will be available next week."
Brown was cut on a block and lay on the ground for an extended period before team trainers took him off on a cart. Brown was on the sideline in the second half and could be seen walking off the field in street clothes following the 56-0 victory.
Penn State is set to open Big Ten play next weekend against Iowa, Brown is sixth on the team in total tackles with eight to his name including a pass breakup against Pitt.
