Defensive End Torrence Brown Out For Season

Penn State’s starting defensive end Torrence Brown is out for the season, according to Chris Fowler, who said it on the ABC broadcast of the Iowa game.

The redshirt junior from Tuscaloosa, AL was carted off during the first quarter of a 56-0 win over Georgia State with an injury to his right knee.

Brown, who recorded eight tackles in 2017, will likely be replaced by Ryan Buchholz after the redshirt sophomore filled in during those final three quarters of action against the Panthers.

“I don’t know anything about his injury, but [Brown] went down. A lot of younger guys got to step up. We’re about to go into Big Ten play,” opposite side starting defensive end Shareef Miller said Saturday following the game. “I think they did real well tonight. I’m real excited and happy for them, but they got to pick it up.”

Miller wore Brown’s No. 19 jersey in honor of the injured defensive end.

Franklin initially thought that his injured starter might be able to get back to action as soon as this week. Brown was seen walking around on the sideline during the second half and was in good spirits in the locker room according to teammates.

“I know he just broke the team down in the locker room and he was out the second half so obviously we are hopeful that he will be available next week,” Franklin said after the game.

With the latest news, he’ll join cornerback John Reid as the Nittany Lions who are out in the long term.
