DURHAM, N.C. ― Pitt defensive tackle Keyshon Camp suffered an apparent leg injury during the Panthers’ football game against Duke on Saturday.
Camp started the game at defensive tackle and suffered the injury on the third play of Duke’s drive. The redshirt senior laid on the turf at Wallace Wade Stadium after the play ended. Referees signaled for an injury timeout and he was helped off the field.
Once reaching the sidelines, Camp went to the medical tent. He later emerged wearing a walking boot on his right foot and using crutches.
Broadcasters on the ACC Network reported that Camp would not return to the game.
Camp, has been key to the Panthers’ defense this season ― which ranks 15th in the nation against the rush, allowing just 104.6 yards on the ground per-game. Pitt has also racked up 25 sacks this season, which ranks second in the ACC and is 12th nationally.
A 6-foot-4 native of Lakeland, Florida, Camp has 14 tackles this season, a sack, a fumble recovery, a forced fumble and a QB hit.
It seems unlikely that he will return against Duke on Saturday, and his status going forward is uncertain.
Early in the second quarter, Pitt trailed Duke 19-14.
