Penn State HC James Franklin Gives an Update on Chop Robinson’s Status

As of now, Penn State coach James Franklin doesn’t see Chop Robinson’s injury as season-ending.

Robinson, who’s evolved into a star defensive end since coming to Penn State before the 2022 season, got hurt in the second quarter of Saturday’s game at Ohio State and had to be carted off the field.

Franklin only goes into detail about injuries if they’re season-ending. The coach wasn’t asked about Robinson’s status after Saturday’s game, which turned into a 20-12 loss in Columbus.

Fortunately for Robinson and Penn State, as of now, this doesn’t look to be a long-term injury.

“From what I understand and from what I see and from what I know, I don’t see this being a long-term issue, but you never know when it comes to medical. But hopefully, we’ll be getting Chop back here soon. As you guys know, I’m pretty open when it’s a season-ending injury. I don’t see that.”

Robinson’s injury occurred with 9:58 left in the second quarter as Robinson took on a block from Ohio State’s Matthew Jones. Robinson turned his head as Jones made helmet-to-helmet contact with him.
Robinson lay on his stomach as trainers tended to him on the field. He was finally able to flip to his back before walking off gingerly with the help of his teammates.

Just a few minutes later, Robinson was taken back to the locker room for observation via a medical.

Although Penn State’s defense held up without Robinson, ending by only giving up 20 points to Ohio State, the defense is unquestionably a lot better with a likely first-round NFL draft pick.
