UNIVERSITY PARK — Mark Allen, Penn State’s second-string running back, suffered a season-ending injury and will not return to the Nittany Lions, coach James Franklin announced Tuesday.

Allen, a fifth-year senior, did not make the trip to Illinois for Penn State’s 63-24 victory last Friday.

Allen was the primary backup to Miles Sanders this season, and rushed for 99 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. He added four catches for 25 yards.

Allen had a career-high 62 rushing yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in Penn State’s 63-10 victory over Kent State on Sept. 15 in what will be his final game with the Lions.
