Tuesday marked the first day of training camp in full pads for Pitt’s players. While most players were outside practicing, DE Greg Romeus was inside apparently working out and making some progress:
Greg Romeus is much improved. He was active today, he worked out hard inside and I expect him to be out there tomorrow practicing.
That’s good to hear, but until further clarification is out (if it ever is) on how much Romeus was able to do, I don’t know how accurate a statement like that is.
Meanwhile, the only other injury reported was backup guard Ryan Turnley. It doesn’t sound serious, though (I know, let me know if you’ve heard this before). That’s good news for Pitt as they can ill afford serious injuries to any of the offensive linemen at this point.
And from looking at incoming freshman, Anthony Gonzalez, Paul Zeise of the Post-Gazette thinks a position switch could happen. Pitt still has two more years out of Sunseri after this season (not to mention pro-style QB Mark Myers), and if he plays well enough, does Dave Wannstedt really want to get potentially nothing out of Gonzalez for two seasons? If he wasn’t capable of playing another position, then keeping him as a backup for a few seasons would make perfect sense. But if he’s really a world-class athlete, that makes the decision a bit more difficult.
