PITTSBURGH — Kedon Slovis took a number of hard hits in the first half of Pitt’s first against Tennessee Saturday afternoon, and upon the team’s return to the field in the second half, Slovis didn’t return.
On Pitt’s final offensive possession of the first half, Slovis was strip-sacked by Tennessee’s Tyler Baron and appeared to be shaken up on the play. Nick Patti came out with the first team offense on Pitt’s first offensive possession of the second half.
Slovis completed 14-of-24 passing attempts for 195 yards and a touchdown. He also threw an interception and had the ball stripped by Baron in the first half.
With Patti inserted in Pitt’s offense, after a long, competitive quarterback competition all offseason, it shouldn’t be expected that Pitt’s offensive scheme changes drastically.
Pitt announced that Slovis suffered an undisclosed injury in the first half and is not expected to return to the football game.
