Penn State Defensive End Pete Massaro to Miss the Entire 2011 Season

Penn State didn't want bad news this soon into spring practices. Unfortunately, bad news always comes when you least expect it.

Such was the case with defensive end Pete Massaro who, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, will miss the entire 2011 season after sustaining a torn ACL in his left knee this past Friday.

The 6-foot-4, 264-pound redshirt junior had 37 tackles last season for the Nittany Lions including eight for losses and three and a half sacks.

This isn't the first time Massaro has missed an entire season. In 2009, he tore his ACL in his right knee during the Blue-White scrimmage game which forced him out of that entire year.

The Gazette reports Junior Sean Stanley and redshirt freshmen Kyle Baublitz and C.J. Olaniyan will be working out in his absence.
