PSU LB Lee doubtful for Saturday game with knee sprain
Penn State linebacker Sean Lee is doubtful for Saturday's game against Iowa after spraining his left knee this past weekend in the Nittany Lions' 31-6 victory against Temple.
Lee is expected to miss up to two weeks, but could return sooner if his rehab progresses as expected.
Lee left Saturday's game early in the fourth quarter and did not return.
"Sean has a sprained left knee and his availability for practice is day-to-day," Penn State spokesman Jeff Nelson said.
The fifth-year senior sat out all of last season with a torn ACL in his right knee. He returned to form in Week 2 when Penn State defeated Syracuse 28-7. Lee recorded a game-high 13 tackles, with three tackles for minus-17 yards, including a 13-yard sack.
The Upper St. Clair graduate was named the Big Ten Player of the Week today after his 12-tackle performance against Temple. He also recorded 2.5 tackles for loss.
