Sophomore running back will miss the rest of the season and is looking at a long rehab. He was injured in PSU's win over Indiana.

Penn State running back Brandon Beachum is out of the season.

The sophomore was helped off the field after he served as a blocker on a kickoff return in the Nittany Lions' 31-20 win over Indiana at Beaver Stadium Saturday.

Monday, Penn State announced that Beachum sustained a torn ACL in his right knee. He will have surgery within the next two week, according to the release, and is then facing a rehab of at least nine months.

The Youngstown native played as a true freshman last year and has seen action in every game to date this season.

He has a redshirt available for 2010 if needed.

Beachum ranks fourth on the team in rushing this season with 113 yards and a score on 24 carries.
