Pitt Football Training Camp: Ray Graham Expected To Play In Opener Against Youngstown State?

Pitt star running back Ray Graham was recently expected to sit out the team's opener against Youngstown State next weekend according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy. However, Graham himself has a thing or two to say about that:

"It's looking good; it's looking good," Graham said when asked about the outlook for an appearance on Sept. 1. "We have a week and some change before the game, and it's feeling good. I'm taking it one day at a time, and as the days go on, I'm feeling that much better and confident. So when September hits, we're going to take it and see from there."

Graham's status is still very much up in the air and just because he says it's looking good doesn't mean he'll play as he probably won't have the final say. That will belong to head coach Paul Chryst, who has a tough decision to make. He can either play Graham in the opener and get him some reps before Pitt's Big East game against Cincinnati the following week, or he can sit him and rely on backups Isaac Bennett and Rushel Shell.

Whatever he decides to do, we might not find out until just before game time.
