Penn State tight end Adam Breneman will miss the remainder of spring practice because of a bone bruise in his knee, a source with knowledge of the injury confirmed to the Tribune-Review.

Breneman, who had 15 receptions for 186 yards and two touchdowns as a true freshman last season, is expected to be healthy by May and ready for the start of preseason camp.

Nittany Lions coach James Franklin has made team policy not to publicly discuss injuries. Breneman was not seen at a practice that was partially open to the media Saturday.

Breneman was one of the nation's top tight end recruits last season. He came on late in the season, having a touchdown catch during each of the final three games.

Tight end is arguably the deepest position on the Penn State roster. Rising juniors Kyle Carter and Jesse James return, sophomore Brent Wilkerson is back after missing last season because of injury and Mike Gesicki was one of the nation's top high school tight ends this past season.
