Tight end Kyle Carter is listed as day-to-day after suffering an ankle injury Saturday against Ohio State, but Penn State coach Bill O'Brien said today that "he seems to be doing OK."

Carter limped slightly to the locker room, an ice pack covering his left ankle, shortly after a 20-yard touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter. It is unknown whether he participated in practice Monday, but losing Carter could greatly impact the Lions' offense.

The redshirt freshman has been Matt McGloin's No. 2 target for most of the season, and he led the team in catches through the last two weeks. His 35 receptions this season are more than McGloin's Nos. 3 and 4 options combined (34).

Without Carter, the passing game will have to rely more on Matt Lehman and Brandon Moseby-Felder.

Carter's status will be updated Wednesday.
