Tight End Adam Breneman Out Indefinitely

UPDATE 6:17 p.m. — Bob Flounders of the Patriot News/PennLive has reported that Breneman has a left knee injury that will most likely require surgery.

Breneman tore his right ACL in high school, but luckily Flounders says that this isn’t the same knee. He’s reporting that this is a left knee injury related to a bone bruise he suffered in the spring that caused him to miss practice and the Blue-White game.

PennLive is reporting that a redshirt will likely be applied this year to allow Breneman to rehab properly.

________________________________

Penn State announced today that rising sophomore tight end Adam Breneman is “out indefinitely” with an undisclosed injury, a very unfortunate blow to a strong tight end corps that James Franklin said Penn State will rely on in 2014.

The 6-foot-4, 243-pound Breneman had an impressive true freshman season, hauling in 15 catches for 186 yards and three touchdowns to become one of Penn State’s top returning receivers. Most notably, he grabbed a 68-yard reception in Penn State’s stunning upset of Wisconsin in the season finale.

In high school, Breneman missed time with a torn ACL. The press release asks for privacy for the Breneman family as he deals with the injury.

The tight ends lose some depth, which has been of precious value to Penn State since the sanctions. Rising junior Jesse James and rising redshirt junior Kyle Carter will carry a larger burden into the 2014 season, and rising redshirt sophomore Brent Wilkerson should see a bump in playing time as a result of the injury. Penn State is returning only two wide receivers who have caught a pass in their careers, so any injury to a receiver hurts. We’re wishing Breneman, who’s an extremely friendly guy on top of being a key cog in the roster, nothing but the best in his recovery and hope to see him on the field soon.
