Report: Defensive End Zuriah Fisher Out For Season With Injury

Sophomore defensive end Zuriah Fisher will miss the 2022 Penn State football season with an injury, according to a report by Lions247’s Sean Fitz that didn’t specify the nature of Fisher’s ailment.

With high-profile departures from defensive ends Arnold Ebiketie and Jesse Luketa, Fisher was expected to play a role in the defensive line’s rotation next season. He likely would’ve competed for snaps against up-and-coming pass-rushers like Adisa Isaac, Nick Tarburton, and Smith Vilbert.

Last season, Fisher appeared in eight games and recorded four tackles. With the Nittany Lions’ bevy of opt-outs ahead of the Outback Bowl, Fisher shouldered more responsibility and converted the increased playing time into a pair of tackles.

Fisher originally joined the team as a linebacker and made his collegiate debut at that position in the 2020 season finale. He switched his attention to defensive end in the subsequent spring ball season.

In September 2019, the Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, native committed to Penn State, as a three-star defensive end in the Class of 2020. According to 247Sports, Fisher was then the No. 13-ranked recruit in Pennsylvania and the nation’s No. 51 defensive end prospect.
