Penn State tight end Kyle Carter 'day-to-day' with ankle injury


The fans at Beaver Stadium began to file out of their seats with two minutes remaining on Saturday. The Whiteout was spoiled and Penn State's five game winning streak was dashed. The Nittany Lions have Urban Meyer and his Buckeyes to thank for that.

But perhaps lost in the mix was the wince on Kyle Carter's face. As the game clock ticked down, the redshirt sophomore hobbled off the field, assisted by a trainer. A bulging bag of ice was wrapped around his left ankle.

On Tuesday in the Big Ten coaches teleconference, coach Bill O'Brien revealed that Carter would be 'day-to-day' with a lower leg injury. 

"I'll know better at the end of the week," O'Brien said. "He seems to be doing okay."

Carter is second on the Lions with 35 catches and 441 yards. The redshirt freshman -- like most of his five best friends who make up the 'Supa Six' - is having a breakout season. The Delaware native has two touchdowns, includng a 20-yard catch with 1:41 remaining on Saturday. It is believed that Carter injured himself on that catch.
