Penn State Depth Chart and Injury Report: EMU Edition


Penn State suffered some injuries last week. See while ones are serious, and who'll be ready to go tomorrow.

Given Penn State's scholarship restrictions, we knew any injury had the potential to loom large, but if there's a silver lining to Matt Lehman's knee injury, it's that tight end is Penn State's deepest position. If there's another silver lining, it's that the injury occurred early enough in the season that Matt Lehman should qualify for a medical redshirt and a sixth year of eligibility, should he want to come back for one more season in the blue and white.

Of course, the tight end depth takes another big hit if Kyle Carter also can't go. Carter, who suffered a wrist injury that forced him to miss three games and part of the offseason, left last week's game with an arm injury (although he did return later), and is listed as day-to-day. The same goes for Mike Hull, who looked to tweak a knee, and came back into the game before putting on street clothes at halftime. Both are listed by Bill O'Brien as "possible," though it seems Hull, who BOB declared "probable", is likelier to see playing time tomorrow.

Still out for an extended period time is Brent Wilkerson, and DaeSean Hamilton and Brad Bars remain out for the year.

On to the depth chart!

Only minor changes this week, as Hack and Gilliam did enough to remove the "OR" at QB and RT. Additionally, Von Walker replaces Bill Belton as the second punt returner. That's it.
