The Pitt football team has been experiencing losses in their secondary since before training camp began, so they should be used to losing bodies by now.
That doesn’t make losing strong safety Terrish Webb any easier.
Webb, who started all eight games before injuring his right ankle Oct. 25 against Georgia Tech, had surgery Friday and will miss the remainder of the season.
The Clairton graduate is tied for the team lead in interceptions (two) and has been fairly productive for the Panthers since his freshman campaign last year.
Webb was replaced by Reggie Mitchell last week against Duke.
Mitchell moving from cornerback means freshman Avonte Maddox started at corner.
Maddox, one of two freshman in the Panthers’ secondary right now, was beat deep for a pair of touchdowns last week.
