Penn State could be without one of its starting receivers for at least a portion of today’s game with Northwestern.
After Penn State’s second offensive play, KeAndre Lambert-Smith, Penn State’s No. 3 receiver behind Mitchell Tinsley and Parker Washington, went down and limped off the field with assistance.
Minutes later, Lambert-Smith was seen on the sidelines walking with a limp and he hasn’t returned to the game yet.
In his third season, Lambert-Smith has nine receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown through four games this season.
Lambert-Smith’s lone touchdown catch was a big one, coming in the third quarter of Penn State’s 35-31 season-opening win at Purdue. So far, that Purdue game has been Lambert-Smith’s best of 2021. He finished the night with four catches for 58 yards and the score.
Nittany Sports Now will update this story when more information is known. In the meantime, Penn State leads Northwestern 14-0 in the third quarter.
