Penn State Football Linebacker Keon Wylie To Miss Time Due To Undisclosed Injury

Update, 12:47 p.m.:

A Penn State Athletics spokesperson confirmed to Onward State that Penn State football linebacker Keon Wylie will miss time due to injury.

Original Story:

Penn State football linebacker Keon Wylie will miss “significant” time due to an undisclosed injury, according to On3 and 247Sports.

Wylie didn’t appear in the Blue-White Game last month and was absent during the last few media availability of spring practice. With Curtis Jacobs heading to the NFL and Abdul Carter making the switch to defensive end, the redshirt sophomore was expected to have a bigger role this upcoming season.

Wylie was a three-star recruit coming out of Imhotep Institute, per 247Sports, and redshirted his freshman year after being named the team’s Developmental Squad Defensive Player of the Year. The 6’2″, 220-pound linebacker played in all 13 contests last season and posted 17 tackles, five for a loss, and three sacks.

Spokespersons for Penn State Athletics didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
