Matt Flanagan Out For North Carolina Game



PITTSBURGH — Pitt used the bye week to get healthy, as defensive tackle Keyshon Camp (head), defensive end Dewayne Hendrix (lower body) and cornerback Avonte Maddox (right arm) are all listed as probable and are expected to dress for Pitt’s Thursday night game against North Carolina.

But the Panthers also added a name to the injury report, as tight end Matt Flanagan is listed as out for the game.

Flanagan’s specific injury was not disclosed on Pitt’s injury report, but according to a Pittaburgh Sports Now source, he has a foot or ankle injury and is expected to miss multiple weeks.

Flanagan, a graduate transfer from Rutgers, has started every game this season for Pitt at tight end. He has 17 catches for 160 yards in the season. The only other tight ends Pitt has used this season have been redshirt sophomore Chris Clark and freshman Tyler Sear. Freshmen Grant Carrigan and Charles Reeves are expected to redshirt.

Running back Qadree Ollison has also been used as an H-back and could supplement the depth at that position.

Cornerback Therran Coleman, who left the Duke game early and did not play against Virginia, is not listed on the injury report.
