PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pitt defensive tackle Gus Mustakas will miss the rest of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, leaving the Panthers without their top defensive lineman.
Mustakas was injured during the third quarter of a 34-10 victory over Grambling State on Saturday. Because he was hurt in the second game of the season, the junior can apply for a medical redshirt that will allow him to play two more seasons.
``We are incredibly disappointed for Gus,'' Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt said Monday. ``He was off to an outstanding start this season and has been playing like an all-star caliber defensive lineman since the spring.''
Mustakas had 11 tackles in Pitt's first two games, including two for losses. A season ago, he scored the first touchdown by a Pitt defensive lineman since 1999 on an interception return against Toledo.
Pitt plays Saturday at Michigan State. The Spartans had 533 yards of offense during a 38-23 victory in Pittsburgh last season.
