Graduate tight end Tyler Will suffered a concussion in the second half against Penn State, and was taken off on a stretcher after a lengthy delay. Will was seen moving his hands as he was carted off the field, and he was awake, alert, and moving as he was taken to a hospital for evaluation. 

Will suffered the injury on the second half opening kickoff, and was motionless on the field for several minutes. Both teams knelt on their respective sidelines in front of a shocked Beaver Stadium, as the listed attendance of over 105,000 feared the worst. The crowd gave Will a standing ovation when the news was announced that he was alert and moving.

Will, in his third season with the Wildcats, has appeared in all four games for the team. He had a ten yard rush in the second game of the season against Bucknell, as well as 21 receiving yards against the Bison. The Newtown Square native has been a standout on special teams in his three years with the ‘Cats.

The Wildcats trailed 17-3 at the time of the injury.
