Penn State DE Zuriah Fisher Out With Undisclosed Season-Ending Injury

Due to an injury, Penn State defensive end Zuriah Fisher won’t be playing football in 2022.

Fisher, a 6-foot-3, 260-pound sophomore defensive end from Aliquippa, was expected to take on a more significant role for the 2022 season, with Arnold Ebiketie and Jesse Luketa going to the NFL and Nick Tarburton being the only starting defensive end returning. Instead, he’ll spend the rest of the year supporting his teammates and looking forward to 2023. The specifics of his injury are undisclosed.

Fisher played 119 snaps for Penn State last year and saw some action in the Outback Bowl loss to Arkansas due to Ebiketie opting out of the game and Luketa having to moving to linebacker. Fisher was initially a linebacker himself at Penn State, but switched to the defensive front after the 2020 season.

Penn State’s front four got a boost earlier this week when Maryland transfer Demeioun Robinson committed Tuesday. Fisher’s absence might create more snaps for fellow sophomore Amin Vanover, who had 37 fewer snaps that Fisher did last season.
