Chop Robinson is expected to make his return to the lineup for No. 10 Penn State’s matchup vs. visiting No. 3 Michigan, according to On3’s Matt Zenitz.

The 6-foot-3 junior defensive end/linebacker was carted off the field during the first half of the loss against Ohio State and has been out the last 2 games.

However, Robinson practiced this week, which provided optimism about his chances to play against the Wolverines.

Robinson has tallied 9 tackles, 3 sacks, and a forced fumble this season. The Maryland native originally started his college career with 1 season for the Terrapins in 2021. For his career, Robinson has amassed 29 total tackles and 5 sacks.

Penn State has been dominant defensively this season. The Nittany Lions rank No. 3 nationally in points per game allowed (11.9) with 2 shutouts and have allowed over 15 points in just 1 contest this season.

This game will be key to the Big Ten race as Michigan is tied for first with Ohio State, while Penn State is second in the conference. The Big Ten recently announced its suspension for Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who is barred from coaching during games for the remainder of the regular season.

Michigan at Penn State is slated for an 11 a.m. CT kickoff (FOX).
