Penn State offensive lineman Brendan Mahon has been admitted to Hershey Medical Center, multiple outlets are reporting.
According to the Centre Daily Times, the 21-year-old redshirt junior is in “stable condition,” citing Penn State athletics. Penn Live’s Greg Pickel confirmed the player’s status, but added that a spokesperson for the school provided no additional details.
Mahon left last Saturday’s 41-14 win at Iowa in the first quarter with an undisclosed injury. He was later carted off the sideline.
During his Tuesday news conference, before news of Mahon’s hospitalization broke, Penn State coach James Franklin wouldn’t elaborate on the player’s injury.
“Right now, obviously we ended the game with Paris (Palmer) and Chasz (Wright),” Franklin said. “Right now that’s about all the information I have. As you guys know, I don’t get into a whole lot of specifics anyway.”
The 6-foot-4, 320-pound Mahon is from Randolph, N.J., and has developed into one of No. 10 Penn State’s best linemen, even grading out as the nation’s best player at his position for the week of Oct. 1.
