Brendan Mahon Hospitalized, In ‘Stable Condition’

Redshirt junior right tackle Brendan Mahon was admitted to Hershey Medical Center and is in “stable condition,” Penn State athletics confirmed to the Centre Daily Times on Tuesday night.

Mahon left Saturday’s 41-14 win over Iowa with an unspecified injury following the Nittany Lions’ first offensive series. He was later seen being carted off the Penn State sideline before the end of the first quarter.

Mahon earned the starting left tackle job during preseason camp, but was flipped to the opposite side after classmate Andrew Nelson went down with a season-ending injury against Maryland. Paris Palmer filled in immediately at left tackle, and redshirt sophomore Chasz Wright was pressed into action in Mahon’s absence versus the Hawkeyes.

James Franklin doesn’t discuss injuries unless they’re season-ending. He didn’t mention Mahon’s status moving forward at his Tuesday press conference, which could bode well for the Randolph, N.J., native’s return to the lineup at some point. True freshman Will Fries is the next tackle listed on the depth chart and could see his redshirt lifted on the road at Indiana this Saturday at noon.
