Boyd, Blair suspended for Pitt’s opener

PITTSBURGH — Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi announced that junior wide receiver Tyler Boyd and sophomore defensive lineman Rori Blair will be suspended for the Panthers’ Sept. 5 season opener against Youngstown State.

The one-game disciplinary suspensions were the result of the players being involved in separate offseason legal situations involving motor vehicles.

“In addition to their game suspensions, Tyler and Rori have been, and will continue to be, subject to internal discipline and accountability,” Narduzzi said. “The situations were very disappointing and both young men have expressed their regret. Our expectation is that each of them, as well as our entire team, will learn from their mistakes and be better for it moving forward.”

The Panthers open training camp on Monday, Aug. 10.
