PSU WR Parker Washington out for Season

Penn State receiver Parker Washington is out for the rest of the 2022 season, coach James Franklin announced in his weekly press conference.

Washington didn’t play this past Saturday against Rutgers and wasn’t seen at the team’s weekly media viewing window the previous Wednesday.

Franklin said after the Rutgers game— a 55-10 win– that he planned to update Washington’s status Tuesday, and he gave the update. 

We now know that Penn State will be without its leading receiver for Saturday’s regular-season finale with Michigan State at Beaver Stadium and the team’s bowl game. Washington will finish his year with 46 receptions, 611 yards and 13.3 yards per catch, all team highs. He also has two touchdowns. Based on how Penn State has done business this year, Mitchell Tinsley (39 catches, 452 yards, 4 TD) is now the No. 1 receiver. KeAndre Lambert-Smith would move to the No. 2 slot, and Harrison “Trey” Wallace has the third starting position.

Washington has been a staple in Penn State’s offense since beginning his college football career in 2020. He currently sits 12th on the school’s all-time receiving list. It’s still being determined if Washington has played his last college game. With his talent level and pedigree, it’s certainly conceivable that Washington will enter the 2023 Draft.

The good news for Penn State and its fan is that Franklin expects offensive tackle Olu Fashanu and cornerback Joey Porter Jr— both projected first-round draft picks– to be back at some point this season, hopefully by Saturday.
