Pitt loses DL Ejuan Price for season

Pitt defensive end Ejuan Price will miss the 2014 season with a chest injury, further depleting an already thin position group for the Panthers.

Price tore a pectoral muscle during workouts this week, the school announced Wednesday, and the junior will undergo surgery to repair the injury.

“We are incredibly disappointed for Ejuan,” Pitt coach Paul Chryst said in a statement. “We will do everything we can to help him stay encouraged and focused through this challenge.”

Price was penciled in as a starter on Pitt’s new-look defensive line. He had a strong start to the 2013 season, recording 23 tackles, including four for a loss, in six games before a back injury Oct. 19 against Old Dominion ended his season.
