Penn State could be without the services of cornerback John Reid for most of the 2017 season.

According to Blue White Illustrated, Reid suffered an unidentified leg injury in spring practice and “is expected to miss the bulk” of the upcoming season.

As a sophomore in 2016, Reid was an honorable mention Big Ten selection and had 36 tackles, five tackles for loss and an interception. He started all 14 of Penn State’s games and was set to pair with Grant Haley once again as one of the best cornerback duos in the Big Ten.

He was also the team’s main punt returner in 2016. He averaged 7.5 yards a return on 22 chances.

Reid was a four-star recruit and the No. 16 cornerback in the class of 2015 according to Rivals. He made 13 appearances and two starts in his freshman season.
