Trace McSorley injury update: Penn State QB starts second half

Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley left Saturday’s matchup with Iowa with an apparent leg injury.

The Nittany Lions’ signal caller was sacked on a third-down play in the second quarter. He walked off the field under his own power, but his mobility was clearly hampered.

Penn State QB Trace McSorley has been helped off the field in the 2nd quarter after being shaken up on a play.

McSorley was 4-for-8 passing for 54 yards with a touchdown before exiting the game. 

The senior had never missed a game with an injury coming into Saturday’s start.  

Tommy Stevens replaced McSorley on the next possession, while McSorley was seen on the sidelines riding a stationery bike.

McSorley returned a couple of series later with a limp. He was then taken out again and replaced by Stevens.

“We put him back in there because he felt like he could go,” head coach James Franklin said at halftime. “We’ve got a lot of confidence in Trace, so we’ll see what the trainer’s saying and how he looks after half.”

McSorley did start the second half and completed a pass on the first play.
