Pitt freshman receiver/return specialist Cameron Saddler has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will miss the season, Pitt spokesman E.J. Borghetti confirmed today.
The 5-foot-7, 175-pound Saddler, who starred at Gateway High School, was injured in a special teams drill before Tuesday’s scrimmage. Surgery is pending for Saddler, who is expected to receive a medical redshirt and will have four years of eligibility remaining.
Saddler is the second Panthers player to suffer a season-ending knee injury, following redshirt junior defensive end Doug Fulmer, who tore ligaments in his left knee Sunday.
