Pitt Loses Tre Tipton for the Season

Pitt Loses Tre Tipton for the Season

The bad luck with the injury bug strikes Pitt’s Tre Tipton again.

Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that the sophomore wide receiver will miss the entire 2017 season because of non-football knee injury.

This is so unfortunate for Tipton because this is the third time he’s been injured in his young college career.

Losing Tipton for the season impacts the Panthers wide receiver depth chart because he was going to challenge to be Pitt’s third wide receiver behind Jester Weah and Quadree Henderson.

Sophomore Aaron Mathews will now be the leading candidate to grab that third role. Offensive coordinator Shawn Watson will also look to Maurice Ffrench, Ruben Flowers, Michael Smith, Dontavius Butler, Darian Street and possibly Paris Ford for productivity in the passing game.

“I know I speak for the entire team in saying we are all disappointed for Tre. He I spoke an absolutely outstanding young man and teammate. Even though he is unable to play this fall, we know Tre is going to be an invaluable figure in our wide receivers room while he rehabs. That’s the type of person and competitor he is, and he’ll have our fullest support as he works for a full recovery,” said Pat Narduzzi.
