The injury woes continue for Pitt junior defensive lineman Ejuan Price.

Coach Paul Chryst announced Wednesday morning that Price, a Woodland Hills graduate, will undergo season-ending surgery for a torn pectoralis muscle.

The surgery was supposed to take place Wednesday, according to a statement issued by Pitt.

“We are incredibly disappointed for Ejuan,” Chryst said. “We will do everything we can to help him stay encouraged and focused through this challenge.”

As a sophomore in 2013, Price (6 foot, 255 pounds) played in six games at defensive end and started four of them. He totaled 23 tackles, including four for a loss, with one sack and one pass breakup before he suffered a season-ending back injury during an Oct. 19 win over Old Dominion.

Price's best game of the season came during a 19-9 loss at Virginia Tech on Oct. 12, when he posted a career-high eight tackles.

Pitt opens training camp on Aug. 4.
