PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — For the second time in as many days, Pitt has discovered it will lose a player for the rest of the season to injury.

Redshirt freshman wide receiver Salath Williams has a shoulder injury that will need surgery. It’s not clear when exactly the injury occurred other than that it was in the Utah game.

This announcement comes one day after starting cornerback Jason Hendricks was ruled out for the season with a shoulder injury as well.

Williams was not a big part of the Pitt offense, so this injury will not drastically affect what Pitt is able to do with the ball.

Williams is a Dave Wannstedt recruit and at 6-foot-3, 195 pounds presents the Pitt coaching staff with nice intangibles to work with. Williams is a guy that Pitt head coach Todd Graham has spoken highly of since training camp, and he figures to become a bigger part of the offense in the coming years.
