Penn State Football’s Noah Cain Will Miss Rest Of 2020 Season

Penn State football will now be without two of its star running backs for the foreseeable future.

James Franklin stated during his press conference Tuesday that Noah Cain will miss the rest of the 2020 season. The sophomore star appeared to go down with an injury within the first few minutes of Saturday’s contest against Indiana.

Cain earned three carries on the Nittany Lions’ first drive against the Hoosiers worth thirteen yards. He was expected to lead Penn State’s running back group after it was announced last week that Journey Brown could “potentially” miss the 2020 season due to an undisclosed medical condition.

During his first year in Happy Valley last fall, Cain put up a freshman-record eight touchdowns and had 443 rushing yards. He established himself as the premier backup to Brown by putting up consecutive 100-yard performances against Purdue and Iowa.

Cain was the top running back listed on Penn State’s updated depth chart for the Ohio State game, while Devyn Ford was slated behind him.

With Cain now gone for this entire season and potentially Brown, the Nittany Lions will lean on Ford, Keyone Lee, and Caziah Holmes. Ford led the group with 20 carries worth 70 yards and a touchdown against Indiana, while the pair of freshmen combined for 52 yards on the ground.
