When Penn State cornerback D'Anton Lynn laid motionless on the field after trying to make a hit in the third quarter of Penn State's win against Eastern Illinois on Sept. 24, some wondered whether the senior would ever see the field again for the Nittany Lions.
Lynn, who's been suffering from concussion like symptoms since that game, made his return to the field on Saturday against Purdue, however, and was able to make an impact, too, finishing with seven tackles on the afternoon in Penn State's 23-18 victory.
His teammates were glad to have him back.
"Knowing D'Anton, he's such a tough guy," safety Drew Astorino said after the game. "Having him on the field is big. We were happy to get him back this week and keep getting him more healthy."
Coach Joe Paterno said at his weekly press conference that he didn't expect Lynn to return this week, but the Celina, Tex. native got the go-ahead Wednesday from the training staff and was able to come back a week earlier than his coach had expected.
Below is video of Lynn's post game comments.
