Pitt Spring Game Deactives

The Pitt football team had an extended "Walking Wounded'' list, along with others out for its annual Blue-Gold intra-squad scrimmage Saturday afternoon at Heinz Field, and that juggled the depth chart quite a bit.

Pittsburgh players who were ruled out for the spring game due to recent injuries or offseason surgery who are expected to be starters this season included included senior tight end Nate Byham (right shoulder), fifth-year senior middle linebacker Adam Gunn (neck) and redshirt junior left offensive tackle Jason Pinkston (left shoulder) and redshirt junior defensive end Greg Romeus (back).

Other players ruled out included fifth-year senior safety Irvan Brown (right Achilles tendon), fifth-year senior defensive end Doug Fulmer (right knee), redshirt junior cornerback Ricky Gary (right knee), redshirt sophomore defensive end Justin Hargrove (left ankle), fifth-year senior middle linebacker Shane Murray (right knee), fifth-year senior defensive tackle Gus Mustakas (right knee) and fifth-year senior tight end John Pelusi (left shoulder).

Redshirt sophomore fullback Henry Hynoski (right toe) and redshirt junior fullback Joe Capp (right foot) were listed as questionable, but neither got any early action.

Redshirt freshman Cameron Saddler (right knee) was limited to just catching punts. He sat out the entire spring, but is close to being ready to play.

Four players were out with suspension: senior cornerback Aaron Berry, senior defensive tackle Tommie Duhart, redshirt sophomore center Wayne Jones and senior wideout T.J. Porter.
