Matthew Harris carted off vs. Penn State

The NU cornerback sustained an injury during the third quarter Saturday.

Matthew Harris was carted off from the field in the third quarter of Saturday's game. He took a hit in the head from Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who was scrambling on a broken third down play. Harris was taken to a hospital for further evaluation, but according to team officials, was "alert and moving."

Harris appeared to force a fumble from Penn State wide receiver Bill Belton, and proceeded to run it back for a touchdown. The play was overturned after a review. After an inconsistent start to the season, Harris was performing well against the Nittany Lions. We'll have an update on his status shortly.
