Injury Updates Following First Scrimmage

Pitt was back at it today after Saturday’s scrimmage. While Greg Romeus didn’t do everything at practice, he was apparently much more active and in full pads:

“It was good to get Greg Romeus back today, and to see him working. He didn’t do everything, but he came out in pads and worked. He got back in the middle of things, which was good. We expect to do more with him every day, getting him ready to go.

Two pieces of fairly big news today. Ray Graham’s injury, suffered yesterday, appears to be nothing more than a sprained ankle. With the recent questions about Romeus’ injury, I’m not sure everyone will believe that. But it’s what Wannstedt’s reporting at this time.

Also, freshman Bryan Murphy was stepped on and broke his foot. He’ll be out for 6-8 weeks. The situation is a bad one, but will likely make Dave Wannstedt’s decision about redshirting him a lot easier. Even if he can get back after six weeks, his first game back would be October 2nd against FIU. Yes, Murphy would have a week of practice before that game, but that is already Pitt’s fourth contest of the season. Factor in all the practices, scrimmages, and games missed, and he’s going to be way behind. And that’s a best-case scenario.

I think Murphy redshirts this season unless injuries force him into the line of duty.
