James Franklin has unfortunate status update on Penn State TE Pat Freiermuth
After Penn State dropped to 0-5 on the season tonight, head coach James Franklin dropped an injury update on tight end Pat Freiermuth.
It’s not good news as the tight end is going to be out for the rest of the season, according to Tom VanHaaren:
James Franklin says Penn State tight end Pat Freiermuth will have season ending surgery next week for an injury suffered against Ohio State.

Freiermuth didn’t play today due to the injury but he had a very strong season. He had 23 receptions for 310 yards and a touchdown and his longest catch of the season was 74 yards.
His best season came during the 2019 season as he had 43 receptions for 507 yards and seven touchdowns. He had eight touchdowns during his freshman season (2018), but he didn’t have as many yards (368).
Freiermuth will most likely be back for his senior season and he’ll look to shatter his career-high in yards and touchdowns for the Nittany Lions.
Penn State’s next game comes against Michigan next Saturday and there’s been no time set for it.
