MIAMI -- Penn State star linebacker Paul Posluszny left the
game on a cart after appearing to injure his right leg late in the
fourth quarter of the Orange Bowl on Tuesday night.
Posluszny's knee crashed into a Florida State blocker, causing
him to flip and hit the ground around midfield. He grabbed his
right knee before being taken into the locker room.
Leading rusher Tony Hunt injured his left ankle in the first
quarter and was sitting on the bench in the second half with no
helment and his left ankle taped up. He had a 3-yard catch on Penn
State's first possession.
Hunt was replaced by backup Austin Scott, who scored Penn
State's first touchdown on a 2-yard run to give the Nittany Lions a
7-0 lead after one quarter. Hunt, a junior, has run for 1,047 yards
and six touchdowns this season.
Starting fullback BranDon Snow also limped off the field in the
third quarter after a 1-yard carry and appeared to also be favoring
his left ankle.
