PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Pitt center Jimmy Morrissey will miss the rest of the season after undergoing ankle surgery Monday.

Morrissey was injured in the final minutes of Saturday’s ACC Coastal Division clinching win against Wake Forest.

Morrissey started in 23 consecutive games for the Panthers.

“Jimmy has been tremendous for us this year, both as a player and a leader,” Narduzzi said. “We all share his disappointment, but I know this will only be a temporary setback for him. Jimmy will be back next year better than ever. In the meantime, I know he will continue to do all he can to help our offensive line perform at the same high level. That’s the type of person and teammate he is.”
