Morgantown, West Virginia – Earlier today, Pitt’s presumed starting quarterback, Kedon Slovis, was “carted off the field” during the Panthers’ practice. The extent of the injury is not yet known.
Slovis, a senior quarterback from transfer USC, played in 27 games, making 26 starts over three seasons. He completed 68% of his passes (652 of 953) for 7,576 yards with 58 touchdowns and 24 interceptions for the Trojans.
Stay tuned for more updates on his injury as they become available!
Update: It appears that initial reports from the Pitt media were perhaps exaggerated. Several trusted sources have since said that they believe the injury was minor and that Slovis should be ready for the Backyard Brawl on September 1st.
