Greg Romeus isn’t the only one dealing with an injury.
Two new receivers, freshman Todd Thomas and converted QB Greg Cross, are both less than 100%:
Freshman Todd Thomas has some stitches in his elbow and he’s been limited to non-contact drills. Wannstedt said after practice that he will get them out tomorrow (Tuesday) and if that is the case then he should be cleared and ready for full contact tomorrow…
…One other receiver who is banged up is Greg Cross, who has a minor ankle injury and has been somewhat limited.
As Paul Zeise correctly points out later in the article, Cross’ injury really hurts him. He’s playing the position for the first time this season and needs all the work he can get in. With the glut of receivers Pitt has, he could easily slide down the depth chart in a hurry.
