PITTSBURGH — Pitt defensive tackle Keyshon Camp will likely miss the rest of the 2018 season with an upper-body injury, head coach Pat Narduzzi announced on Monday.
Camp was injured in the Notre Dame game and did not play or dress against Duke last Saturday.
He’ll finish with 14 tackles, eight of them solo tackles, two sacks and two quarterback hurries. A redshirt sophomore from Lakeland, Florida, Camp will have two more seasons of eligibility after this one.
He was replaced in the starting lineup by redshirt freshman Jaylen Twyman, with junior Amir Watts and redshirt sophomore Rashad Wheeler also getting playing time. Narduzzi said that not having Camp hurt his team’s run defense against Duke.
“That did effect it a lot,” he said. “He’s a penetrator. He causes havoc in the backfield. [Not having him] didn’t help us at all.” Narduzzi said one or two true freshman might get their first playing time of the season on Saturday, with defensive tackle a likely spot for one of those debuts.
