Ray Graham Injury: Pitt Running Back 'Progressing,' But How Much?

ESPN's Andrea Adelson caught up with Pitt head coach Paul Chryst about running back Ray Graham and his current status following his season-ending injury last year. Despite the fact that he's supposed to be ready come this fall, it's safe to say that there's still quite a bit of doubt concerning just how healthy he is:

The good news is that Chryst expects Graham to be ready for the start of practice in August. He has no intentions of limiting the workload if Graham has been medically cleared to do everything.

"He’s progressing," Chryst said last month. "Now what that means, I’m not even trying to be tricky about it, you don’t know. But he is making progress and then you get to the point … the more you do are you feeling confident with it? We've had nothing that’s been discouraging."

Graham will play a huge part in Pitt's season. The Panthers do have incoming freshman Rushel Shell and sophomore Isaac Bennett, but a healthy Graham is probably the team's best option.
