Penn State had been pretty lucky when it comes to the injury front this season.
That is, until its most important game of the season was on the horizon. Not only could the Nittany Lions be with stars Noah Cain and KJ Hamler on Saturday, they now could be without another key cog on the offensive side of the ball.
Penn State will be without its starting center for Saturday's showdown with Ohio State, a source with the team told FOX43. Redshirt junior Michal Menet is sidelined with an undisclosed injury, the source said. https://t.co/eJHkSgmO6x— FOX43 Sports (@FOX43Sports) November 22, 2019
FOX43 News in Harrisburg is reporting that Penn State will be without starting center Michal Menet due to an undisclosed injury on Saturday. The redshirt junior has been the picture of consistency for the Nittany Lions this season, anchoring the offensive line in all 10 games.
This likely means that Ohio native Mike Miranda will slide over and get the start at center, with CJ Thorpe taking the starting right guard spot.
Penn State had been any from at 17 to 19 point underdog depending on where you look this week. The injury means that number could well continue to rise.
