Pitt linebacker Quintin Wirginis will miss the rest of the season due to injury, head coach Pat Narduzzi revealed Monday.

“Quintin Wirginis will be out for the year with a non-football related injury,” Narduzzi said at a press conference. “[It’s] disappointing, but it’s something that we deal with. That’s what we do.”

Wirginis — a senior from nearby Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania — was one of three players suspended at the start of August, along with redshirt junior offensive lineman Alex Bookser and junior safety Jordan Whitehead.

He received a three-game ban, and was already going to miss the next two contests against Penn State and Oklahoma State.

Last year, Wirginis totaled 28 tackles and a fumble recovery, playing in all 13 games. He was expected to play a major role in Pitt’s linebacker corps this season.
