 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pitt freshman offensive lineman Chris Jacobson will have surgery to repair a dislocated knee cap, an injury that could force him to miss the entire season.
The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Jacobson, a left guard from Pittsburgh's Keystone Oaks High School, was considered one of Pitt's top recruits. He was challenging for a starting job, a rarity for a freshman lineman.
``It's just an unfortunate thing,'' Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt said Monday. ``We'll see what happens. We'll try to get him back as quickly as we can. Nothing will be decided on how long he's out until after the surgery, and that should take place next week. We're still working through that.''
Jacobson was hurt during drills that took place before a scrimmage on Saturday. Even if he misses the season, he can still play four college seasons.
``It was a pass rush drill and he got twisted around,'' Wannstedt said. ``His knee twisted. He was wearing his brace, but it was the kneecap and not a ligament.''
Jacobson's knee injury is the second involving an important Panthers player during training camp. Wide receiver Derek Kinder, an all-Big East first team pick last season, tore a knee ligament on the first full day of camp and will sit out the season.
Jacobson was considered one of the nation's top high school offensive linemen last season.
