PSU TE Carter ruled out for Indiana game, return this season questionable
November 13, 2012 - Cory Giger
Penn State tight end Kyle Carter has enjoyed a great season, but he's already been ruled out for this week's game against Indiana with a right hand injury.
With only one game remaining after this week, it's questionable if Carter will play again this year.
Carter missed the game at Purdue two weeks ago with an ankle injury but returned this past week at Nebraska. The redshirt freshman made one catch before suffering the hand injury and did not return to the game.
Carter has 36 catches, just five shy of the PSU season record for a tight end set by Andrew Quarless in 2009. He has benefited as much as any player on the team in coach Bill O'Brien's new offense, ranking second on the team to Allen Robinson in both catches and receiving yards (453).
