Ray Graham, Matt Rotheram, and Cameron Saddler will reportedly miss the remainder of the season for the Pittsburgh football team, according to a statement on the team’s official site. Head coach Todd Graham reports that all three players sustained the season-ending injuries last night in the team’s victory of Connecticut.
“We are incredibly disappointed for these three young men,” Coach Graham said on the site. “They have put so much work into our program and it’s heartbreaking to see their seasons end prematurely. Even from the sidelines, I know they are going to remain important leaders who will continue to make an impact as we strive to reach our goal of a Big East championship.”
Graham, a junior running back, suffered a right knee injury and will require surgery. Rotheram, a freshman offensive lineman, fractured his left ankle, and junior wide receiver Cameron Saddler fractured his sternum. Graham entered the game as the nation’s second-leading rusher, after having gained 958 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.
