Brosnan, an Illinois native, took 13 offensive snaps in 2016 and appeared in eight games in 2015.
According to Lions247, Brosnan was dealing with hip issues when he came to the Nittany Lions in 2014 and ongoing injuries caused him to quit football.
Most recently, he was listed as the backup right tackle on the depth chart before the Rose Bowl. His loss further depletes an O-line group that saw offensive tackle Noah Beh not listed on the roster followed by reports that he will transfer to Delaware.
Beh had been suspended for a violation of team rules in December.
