Penn State Lied: Trace McSorley Did Not Break His Foot in the Citrus Bowl

Penn State’s pity party is over.

The Nittany Lions’ star quarterback did not start the second half against Kentucky in the Citrus Bowl.  Penn State officials revealed Trace McSorley would miss the rest of the game with a broken foot.  As you might recall, McSorley did not miss the rest of the Citrus Bowl.

One series after Penn State issued the statement, McSorley re-entered the game and almost led the Nittany Lions to a comeback victory.  Fourteen fourth quarter points in 4:30 quickly erased a 20-point Penn State deficit, until Josh Allen and Benny Snell refused to let McSorley be the hero.

After the game, James Franklin did not provide any specific details about the injury.

With little clarity, praised was heaped upon McSorley for playing through the painful injury. He was Penn State’s knight in shining armor that almost saved the season from a sour finish.  McSorley ran with it, until today.

“I don’t even know how that started,” he told Ian Rapoport at the Senior Bowl.  Obviously, McSorley wanted to reassure NFL scouts that his health is just fine moving forward.

“It was announced that he had a broken foot.  By the way, he did NOT have a broken foot,” Rapoport reported. “He actually went into the locker room.  He kind of dealt with his foot a little bit. He continued running and testing it, actually found out he was able to come out in the second half, didn’t miss a beat, he played and nearly led Penn State to a comeback.”

Penn State’s star quarterback did not play in the Citrus Bowl with a broken foot and he did not lead them to a miraculous comeback victory.  Facts.

    Any excuse for a person associated with State Pen football to head to the locker room…

  3. This is news? Anyone with eyes who watched the game knew his foot wasn’t broken.

    I wish we had a Trace McSorley. Kid was a stud in college. We had a better team. Aside from Benny and Josh, he was probably the best player on the field.

      Why the hell didn’t he win if he had the better team?? Let me tell you why!! BECAUSE HE DIDNT HAVE THE BETTER TEAM!!! Man it’s cool that you think he’s a great player because he absolutely was a stud quarterback that any team would’ve been lucky to have.
      But, we 100% had the better team and won the game. We had a little bit of letdown after getting up by three touchdowns on them, but that doesn’t take away how we got the lead in the first place. By controlling the game from the kickoff. He’s a heck of a player and I’ll never say he wasn’t. What he did to make a comeback was very admirable! Saying that, we still beat them at almost every other position and dominated the game. Thanks

    Sounds like Trace’s PR team is a little McSore with this broken foot storyline.

      Yup – Franklin sold him out like he sold his team out by kicking that field goal thinking Benny Snell could be stopped!

    He doesn’t know how that story got started? Probably didn’t think ahead and how it might affect his draft status. McLiar?

    Ive broken my arm, and my leg. I played baseball and basketball. Absolutely no way I could have done either with both of those injuries. I dont see any way he could have played with a broken foot. A broken toe bone maybe. But as much as Josh Allen got after his arse, there’s no way he was out there with legitimately broken bones. Especially not when he’s slated to go high in the draft. He would have shut it down immediately if it were.

      Exactly right. Especially a broken foot. It was crazy for anyone to believe his foot was broken the was he was running, but with those high powered shots they get at half time sometimes ( hehe), I thought, damn, what heart this kids playing with. Haha.

    McDorely was jumping around after he checked back in and they scored. They scored a second time and he was going bonkers running around with NO limp. They realized they were gonna lose and they made sure to show the courageous hero who was so wounded limping his way off the field. To make it even more disgusting the two Penn St alumni that were calling the game creamedthemselves and shivered while constantly beating their guns about him. GO CATS!!!
