Two days before Pitt must face Navy's triple-option offense, the Panthers lost a key member of its defense when end Ejuan Price suffered a back injury that will keep him out of the lineup indefinitely.

“He will be out for a bit,” coach Paul Chryst said Thursday. “It will be a couple weeks at least, probably more.”

Price started the past four games, recording a sack and another tackle for a loss last Saturday against Old Dominion. Chryst said Price finished the game without a problem, and he doesn't believe he was hurt on a specific play.

“That's too bad,” Chryst said. “I thought he was starting to get into a good groove.”

Chryst also said guard Cory King (back) won't play against Navy, missing his second consecutive game. But wide receiver Devin Street and running back James Conner, who sat out the ODU game with shoulder injuries, have practiced all week are expected to play.
