PITTSBURGH — Coming out of an idle week, Pitt football returning to the practice field on Tuesday, as the Panthers prepare for their ACC matchup with Duke at Heinz Field this Saturday.
As head coach Pat Narduzzi revealed on Monday, there has been a change over the bye week at backup quarterback, as Jeff George, Jr., worked with the second-team offense.
Here’s Pitt’s quarterback working on a pass-rush avoidance drill and also on timing routes with the wide receivers.
Ricky Town remains with the top group of offensive players, while freshman Nick Patti is donning the No. 17 of Duke quarterback Daniel Jones on the scout team.
BACK IN ACTION
Defensive tackle Rashad Wheeler was injured toward the end of the Notre Dame game, but he appeared to be a full participant in practice along with the rest of the Pitt defensive line.
Linebacker Quintin Wirginis, who is out for the season with a knee injury, was also at practice, beginning his physical therapy.
SIGHTS AND SOUNDS
Check out Pitt’s linebackers on the prowl for some loose footballs, the offensive line working on driving defenders back, wide receivers getting off jams and more in the sights and sounds from Pitt football practice.
