Landon Tengwall to miss remainder of season

Penn State’s offensive line will see its depth put to the test a bit in the final three games of the season after losing one key player to season-ending surgery. Landon Tengwall will miss the rest of the regular season, head coach James Franklin announced on Tuesday during his press conference.

“Landon will be done for the year,” Franklin said to the media on Tuesday. Franklin does not typically go into much detail about injury updates, so the specifics of the surgery for Tengwall remain unknown.

Tengwall has been noticeably absent from practices and games the last few weeks, so the news of his season being done is hardly a stunner. Tengwall first missed action last month in a road game at Michigan as a result of an injury suffered leading up to the game.

Tengwall’s spot in the lineup has primarily been filled by Hunter Nourzad, who announced on Tuesday he intends to return to Penn State for his final year of eligibility in 2023.

Tengwall had been one of Penn State’s best offensive linemen this season. Last week, Penn State was also without Olu Fashanu due to an undisclosed injury. Fashanu is said to be week-to-week moving forward for the remainder of the regular season.
