PITTSBURGH — Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett left his team’s game against Western Michigan with an undisclosed injury on Saturday.
With the game tied 7-7 in the first quarter, Pickett scrambled up the middle of the field for a first down, but was hit from behind. Pickett fumbled the ball, which was recovered by Western Michigan, and then stayed down on the field in obvious pain.
Pickett got up and off the field under his own power and immediately went to the Pitt locker room for evaluation.
He was replaced on the ensuing drive by redshirt junior Nick Patti.
Before his injury, Pickett passed Dan Marino for second place in all-time Pitt passing yards with 8,615.
