Ankle Injury To Keep Gophers’ Devers Out Of Penn State Game

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota freshman defensive end Tai’yon Devers will miss the game at Penn State because of a left ankle injury.

Devers has forced a fumble on all three of his sacks this season, including a highlight-reel hit last week on Colorado State’s Collin Hill that knocked off the quarterback’s helmet. Devers was hurt later in the game.

Minnesota coach Tracy Claeys also said Tuesday that tight end Brandon Lingen, who hasn’t played this season because of a shoulder injury, is still about three weeks from returning.

Also out for the Gophers (3-0) on Saturday for the Big Ten opener is freshman linebacker Carter Coughlin (elbow), who made his first career start against Colorado State. Wide receiver Rashad Still (shoulder) will miss another game, too.
