At least for the rest of spring practices.
It’s been quite a few months in the offline world. Not necessarily in a good way. That’s really all I want to say about the latest gap in posting.
When last I posted on football it was about the running back position. About how there was depth and lots of good feelings at the spot. Naturally that couldn’t last.
Pitt running backs James Conner and Isaac Bennett will miss the final five practices of the spring session because of injuries suffered Friday, the university announced via social media.
Conner, a rising sophomore, sprained his left knee, while Bennett, a senior, sprained his left shoulder, the team posted on Twitter.
The injuries are not expected to prevent them from being ready for offseason conditioning when it begins in May, the team said.
Bennett and Conner combined for 1,596 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns last season.
Conner left the indoor practice facility on a golf cart with his knee wrapped in ice. He had an MRI, which revealed no structural damage.
Not long after Conner was injured, Bennett injured his shoulder. He watched the remainder of practice with his arm in a sling.
Yes, it could have been worse. Both with sprains. Not tears or breaks or anything else.
