Penn State Depth Chart and Injury Report: Indiana Edition


Penn State will likely be without a pair of starters, and some depth, when they face Indiana tomorrow.

The big news, of course, is that Kyle Carter just can't catch a break. First, he hurts his knee at the tail end of the loss to Ohio State, and misses the Purdue game, then, just as soon as he's healthy enough to play, he goes and dislocates his wrist early in the loss to Nebraska; that latter injury will keep him out for the rest of the year. This now concludes a terrific redshirt freshman season for Carter, who was among the most pleasant surprises, breaking out in Bill O'Brien's tight-end heavy system. A Mackey Award nominee and presumptive freshman All-American, Carter finishes with 36 catches for 453 yards and 2 TDs, and will be a key contributor to Penn State's offensive success over the next few seasons.

Malcolm Willis left last week's game with a knee injury, and though he's listed as day-to-day, that seems to be a Bill O'Brien smokescreen. Willis was in street clothes during the open practice this week, and it would be an upset if he's ready to go. In his stead, expect to see a lot of Jacob Fagnano, Ryan Keiser, and Indiana passes to the middle of the field. Adrian Amos could also slide back to FS, with Da'Quan Davis slotting in at corner, but that's just speculative.

Also banged up are James Terry, who was carted off the sideline last week, and Curtis Dukes, who's still dealing with the concussion he suffered a few weeks back, as well as Mark Arcidiacono and Nyeem Wartman, who we should probably just presume are out for the season at this point.

On to the depth chart!
