PITTSBURGH -- The Pitt Panthers lost two players for the remainder of the season, head coach Pat Narduzzi announced ahead of Week 5.
Defensive back Rashad Battle and defensive end Nate Temple will be out for the rest of the season due to injuries. Battle left in Week 4 against Rhode Island with a leg injury and Temple was hurt against Western Michigan with a leg injury as well.
Battle was the Panthers' third cornerback on the outside and was growing into the rotation with each week. Narduzzi said the downside of losing Battle at this point in the year was his size, which would match up well against George Tech's wideouts.
He had six tackles this season.
Temple was a rotational piece at end for Pitt. He played in all three games before being injured and recorded a tackle.
