Christian Hackenberg injures shoulder in Taxslayer Bowl

Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder in today’s Taxslayer Bowl against Georgia and was replaced by redshirt freshman Trace McSorley. He was taken to the locker room for X-rays and his injury was reported on Twitter by multiple sources.

Hackenberg was 8 of 14 for 139 yards and an interception before his injury and if this is the final game of his Nittany Lions career before he heads to the NFL, though that decision has not been made yet, it will not be the ending he was hoping for.

Georgia currently leads 17-3 at halftime, but stay tuned to Campus Sports for any further updates on Hackenberg’s status!
