Penn State WR Keandre Lambert-Smith takes trip to medical tent

With Penn State marching toward a possible double-digit lead on visiting Delaware, the Nittany Lions saw one of their top offensive weapons leave the game with an apparent injury. Wide receiver KeAndre Lambert-Smith was helped off the field late in the first quarter of Penn State’s home game against Delaware on Saturday afternoon in Beaver Stadium.

A video replay showed Lambert-Smith had his ankle rolled over toward the end of a play as Penn State was running the football. He was slow to get off the field but did so under his own power.

Lambert-Smith returned to the game on Penn State’s next offensive series, following a long touchdown run by Delaware. Lambert-Smith picked up a gain of 20 yards on a flea flicker from quarterback Drew Allar but ended the drive with a  trip to the medical tent on the Penn State sideline.


Lambert-Smith did reportedly come out of the tent with no helmet in hand.

We will keep an eye on this developing situation. Lambert-Smith is no stranger to injury issues during his time at Penn State. Whatever the degree of this particular medical concern is, Penn State may be wise to let him have the rest of the afternoon off.
