The news has gone from bad to worse — much, much, much worse — for one of the most talented young tight ends in the country.
Late Monday morning it was reported that Penn State’s Adam Breneman had suffered an unspecified injury of unknown severity. The only word from the Nittany Lions was that the true sophomore would be sidelined indefinitely.
The Patriot-News, however, wrote that “Breneman is dealing with a left knee injury that is expected to require surgery and will likely necessitate a redshirt season.”
The injury, the paper reports, is related to a bone bruise he suffered during the course of spring practice. It’s neither, though, related to the torn ACL Breneman suffered in 2012 nor does it involve any of the major ligaments in either knee.
As a true freshman last season, Breneman caught 15 passes for 186 yards and three touchdowns. A four-star member of PSU’s 2013 recruiting class, the 6-4, 243-pound Breneman was rated as the No. 3 tight end in the country.
