Posluszny, a linebacker, is the 2005 Butkus Award winner and a consensus All-American. He was knocked out of the Lions' 26-23 Orange Bowl victory over Florida State Jan. 3 with a knee injury. The slight ligament tears will take six to eight weeks to heal but will not require surgery.
Brown, a tackle, is a first-team All-Big Ten pick and second-team All-American. He is the only starting offensive lineman from the 2005 Nittany Lions with eligibility remaining.
A source close to the program said both players have indicated they will return for their respective senior seasons.
