On the heels of Penn State star linebacker being named Big Ten Defensive player of the week, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Lee might have sprained his knee in the Temple game before he came off the field in the fourth quarter. His dad thinks that it might be sprained, but there is apparently no swelling. It just hurts a lot.
While the story from the locker room Saturday was that it was a minor lower leg injury or possibly a cramp, Daryll Clark felt that it was the knee.
Meanwhile, Lee sat out of practice today and is listed as day-to-day, according to Penn State assistant athletic director for communications Jeff Nelson.
It is too early to tell whether there is something to worry about, or they’re just trying to lull the Hawkeyes into a false sense of security. This Turkey feels, however that a) where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and b) the Nittany Lions have enough to worry about for this game without inventing stuff and playing mind games. It was obvious that Lee was limping after one play in the second quarter and when he left the game for good in the fourth quarter. Stay tuned.
