Freshman Bill Edwards Tears MCL


Bad news for the Penn State basketball team before the season even starts. Talented freshman Bill Edwards has partially torn his MCL and will miss 4-6 weeks.

UNIVERSITY PARK, PA., Oct. 29, 2009 - The Nittany Lion basketball team suffered its first set-back of the season on Wednesday when 6-6, 235-pound freshman forward Bill Edwards (Middletown, Ohio) suffered a partial tear to the MCL in his right knee during a morning practice.

Team doctors expect Edwards to miss 4-6 weeks with the injury making his scheduled return to the line-up sometime in mid-December. Edwards, who was named the 2009 Ohio Senior Player of the Year after averaging 17.4 ppg and 9.0 rpg as a senior, had been impressive in the preseason with a smooth left-handed shot from the three-point arc and strength taking the ball into the lane and was expected to earn playing time early in the Nittany Lions season.

Curse you, Penn State Athlete Knee-Hating God!
