In case you missed it, the already thin and questionable linebacking corps got a bit thinner with the news of Ejuan Price.
Linebacker Ejuan Price tweeted that he will take a medical redshirt after undergoing pectoral surgery in the spring.
In the long-run, it is probably good for Pitt. The linebackers will be stronger, and Price will have an extra year.
But this year? With Todd Thomas still a big question mark when he is getting all the way back from his ACL surgery? Not so much.
Dan Mason may see more action than anyone really wanted that surgically repaired foot to ever see at this rate. Or maybe Pitt pioneers a 4-2-3-2 defense as a more general defensive look. There is going to be a lot of trial by fire for some of the underclassmen.
One thing I’m feeling sure of: there won’t be a label on Coach Paul Chryst about how he doesn’t play freshmen.
