Earlier Wednesday evening, Penn State head coach James Franklin provided an update on injured running back Devyn Ford and it doesn’t look super promising for his chances to play this weekend.

Here’s the latest update, courtesy of Ben Jones:

Not having Ford would obviously be a big loss for the Nittany Lions as they try and get their first win of the season. He had 56 rushes for 209 yards this season while averaging 3.7 yards per carry. He also has two touchdowns.

Franklin even talked tonight about how much of a loss it would be if Ford couldn’t suit up:

Ford has still not been officially ruled out for the game but Franklin is hoping to get a clearer picture of his status over the next couple of days:

Ford was initially injured in the game against Iowa. As fans will remember, Ford entered the year as the third-string back and was expected to see playing time on a steady but reserve basis.

Since then, Journey Brown was sidelined before the season opener, and Noah Cain was injured early in the game against Indiana. The next running backs on the depth chart are Keyvone Lee and Caziah Holmes.

Kickoff for Penn State’s game against Michigan will be at Noon ET this Saturday and it’ll be televised by ABC.
