Pitt's Avonte Maddox picks off a pass in front of Marshall's Deon-Tay McManus for a fourth-quarter touchdown Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016, at Heinz Field.

Pitt junior cornerback Avonte Maddox, who has started the past 24 games, is listed as doubtful on the team's injury report, released Thursday by coach Pat Narduzzi. Pitt plays its third ACC game Saturday at Virginia.

Maddox injured his arm in the second quarter of Pitt's victory last Saturday against Georgia Tech. He was replaced by redshirt freshman Dane Jackson, who finished the game with four tackles.

Freshmen Damar Hamlin and Therran Coleman and sophomore Phillipie Motley are also listed on the depth chart as backup cornerbacks. Hamlin and Coleman were added this week for the first time.

Senior outside linebacker Mike Caprara, who has missed most of the past three games with a lower body injury, is questionable.

Listed as out (but not for the season) are outside linebacker Elijah Zeise (ankle) and wide receiver Dontez Ford (collarbone).

Out for the season are tight end Chris Clark (knee), defensive lineman Zack Gilbert ()heart condition), offensive lineman Mike Grimm (hip) and defensive end Dewayne Hendrix (foot).
