Pitt Football Suspensions: Russel Shell, 5 Others Suspended For 'Disciplinary Reasons'

The Pittsburgh Panthers will kick off their 2012 season at home against Youngstown State minus six players due to suspension. Via Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

The suspension of Shell might be the biggest loss for Pitt, as the freshman was expected to contribute with the status of starting running back Ray Graham not yet know for Saturday night's game.

The matchup against Youngstown State will mark the debut of new Pittsburgh head coach Paul Chryst. Kickoff for tonight's game at Heinz Field is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. ET, and the game can be seen on ESPN3/WatchESPN.
