UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. --- Penn State outside linebacker Sean Lee has an injured left knee and his playing status for Saturday's game against Iowa is unknown.

"I think it's sprained," Lee's father, Craig, told The Post-Gazette. "He is getting evaluated by the doctor today. I haven't talked to him.

"I have no idea if he can play or not [Saturday]. I saw him yesterday and he was walking around. He didn't have any swelling, but he was sore."

Lee, honored earlier in the day as the Big Ten Conference's defensive player of the week after posting 12 tackles and a sack in the 31-6 win against Temple, limped off the field early in the fourth quarter Saturday. He was holding his left knee and did not talk to reporters afterward.

Penn State officials had said the injury was not considered serious. Lee, a fifth-year senior co-captain, missed last season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

His counterpart, outside linebacker Navorro Bowman, has missed the past two games with a groin injury and is questionable for the Iowa game.
