For the second time this year, Pitt has lost a defensive lineman for the season.
Pitt announced this afternoon that junior defensive tackle Keyshon Camp would miss the remainder of the 2019 season with a knee injury.
”We are really heartbroken for Keyshon,” said Pat Narduzzi. “He put a tremendous amount of work in during the off-season and was outstanding against Virginia before he got hurt. Keyshon is a strong young man, though, and I know he won’t let this adversity sidetrack him.”
Camp left the game on Saturday against Virginia midway through the third quarter and didn’t return. Prior to the injury, Camp was very effective, consistently getting pressure on Virginia quarterback Bryce Perkins.

The injury bug has unfortunately been the story of Camp’s career at Pitt. Last season, Camp was hampered by a shoulder injury and only played six games, recording 14 tackles and two sacks.
Once again, it’ll be next man up for Pat Narduzzi’s team. Amir Watts and Jaylen Twyman will be Pitt’s starters with redshirt freshman Devin Danielson, David Green and former 4-star recruit Tyler Bentley getting action with the second defensive tackle grouping.
