 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pittsburgh outside linebacker Shane Murray will have surgery next week to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and miss the rest of the season.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound Murray, a junior, was one of three returning starting linebackers, but injured his knee during preseason camp. He has played in only one of the Panthers' five games.
The operation is scheduled for Tuesday.
``His knee has not progressed like we had hoped or Shane would have hoped,'' Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt said Wednesday. ``He played a little bit in the Syracuse game (on Sept. 27), a snap or two, and he practiced all last week. But it's just not where it needs to be, unfortunately.''
Fifth-year senior Austin Ransom moved from wide receiver to weakside linebacker to replace Murray and has started every game this season. Redshirt freshman Tristan Roberts is the backup.
The No. 23 Panthers (4-1) play at Navy (4-2) on Saturday.
