Penn State may have to play the rest of the season without top-line center Taylor Holstrom.
The team’s Twitter account quoted coach Guy Gadowsky on Tuesday saying Holstrom, a senior, will miss this weekend’s series against first-place Michigan and isn’t expected to return this season.
Gadowsky: Holstrom is out this weekend. Don’t expect him back this season. Can’t put weight on that foot.

Holstrom left last Saturday’s game at Ohio State favoring his right leg after a collision with the Buckeyes’ Nicholas Jones, the Centre Daily Times reported.
Holstrom is second on the Penn State roster with 33 points, 26 of them coming from assists.
Gadowsky indicated that junior Tommy Olczyk will get a look on the top line with top scorer Casey Bailey and David Goodwin.
