KeAndre Lambert-Smith suffered an injury earlier in the year and it was unclear if he would see the field on Saturday. Penn State will need all the available help they can get as they face No. 5 Michigan in Week 7.

On Wednesday, Lambert-Smith was seen practicing, giving hope that the Lions would be whole for this weekend’s matchup. Lambert-Smith has played in five games for the Nittany Lions this season before was injured during the first series of the Nittany Lions’ 17-7 victory over Northwestern in Week 6. He did not return and was later seen wearing a walking boot.

When asked if the WR would be playing in the matchup against Michigan, Penn State head coach James Franklin said: “We’re hopeful to have KeAndre on Saturday”.

Lambert-Smith has caught 9 passes for 102 yards receiving and 1 touchdown this season. He has the fourth-most receiving yards on the team, and could be an impact player for the Lions on Saturday.
