Carter Warren Recovered From Meniscus Tear, Will Participate at Pitt Pro Day
INDIANAPOLIS — Carter Warren will be back on the practice field at Pitt at least one more time.
While Warren, who suffered a season-ending injury during the season, will not participate in on-field drills at the NFL Combine this week, he will be participating in Pitt’s Pro Day later this month.
“I’m feeling really good,” Warren said. “I will not be going out and performing but currently doing well and will be ready to run on Pro Day.”
Warren confirmed that he’s been recovering from a torn meniscus, and he’s feeling stronger than he ever has after going through his rehab.
Caught up with #Pitt LT Carter Warren. He said his injury was a torn meniscus and that he feels stronger now than before the injury after a few months of rehab.
He's not working out here, but plans to run at Pitt's pro day.

Warren turned down NFL interest, including a Senior Bowl invite, following the 2021 season to return to Pitt for one last season. And while he was only able to play a handful of games before setting it down due to injury, he’s back on the path to the next level.
Warren garnered second-team All-ACC honors in the 2021 season for a Pitt attack that posted school-record production in points (41.4) and yards per game (486.6). In his Pitt career, he played in 40 games (starting full-time at left tackle from the 2019 season on).
The 6-foot-5, 325-pound New Jersey native will look to become the next Pitt man to jump to the next level as an offensive lineman.
A long time ago, Dr. Burke of UPMC’s Burke and Bradley pioneered a procedure where the meniscus tear was repaired and cartliage retained. Did both knees (separate times). Thankful.
