Ray Graham Injury: Pitt Loses Running Back, Others For The Season

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Paul Zeise reported late last night that Pitt running back Ray Graham was scheduled to have an MRI today on his injured knee, and the results, apparently, weren't good at all as he Tweets some news many Panther fans feared as Graham was helped off the field in tears.

So that's it. The nation's fourth leading rusher is lost for the rest of 2011 after one play last night against Connecticut. Truly a huge blow to an offense that appeared to get a bit of its momentum back against the Huskies, managing to roll up 35 points, most of them without Graham. Pitt also loses a productive receiver in Saddler, who'd racked up 207 yards and a touchdown on 19 receptions.

Whether Pitt can sustain these loses remains to be seen, but make no mistake, they're a huge blow to the Panthers' Big East hopes on paper. Time to see if the replacements can step up.
