PSU’s leading tackler carted off field with apparent knee injury

Michael Mauti AP

Big Ten football games aren’t off to a great start today. Michigan running back Fitz Toussaint had to be carted off the field early for what looks like a bad leg injury. At nearly the same time, Penn State linebacker Michael Mauti went down with an apparent knee injury against Indiana.

Mauti was unable to put any weight on his left knee and had to be carted off the field. He currently leads the team with 93 total tackles. He’s also first on the team with three interceptions and three forced fumbles. It goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway), but losing Mauti would be a tremendous blow to Penn State’s defense.

If nothing else, Mauti’s been an emotional leader for Penn State during the past year. To see him go down like that is awful.

The Nittany Lions defeated Indiana 45-22.

    Injured by an illegal chop block…also not called on the play.

    It’s to bad. One of the best linebackers in the nation, he just can’t catch a break.

    It’s sad. Mauti has been a beast ever since he got to PS,U but he injures a knee every year.

    Broke my heart to see him get injured. He’s been an inspiration. I hope it isn’t serious so I can watch him play on Sundays.
