Pitt sophomore middle linebacker Dan Mason will undergo surgery and miss the rest of the season with a right knee injury.

Mason was injured in the third quarter of Thursday's 31-3 loss to Miami. Mason, a Penn Hills product, will be eligible for medical redshirt. He sustained a dislocated right knee cap and torn ligaments. He remained in the hospital as of Monday morning.

Also, Pitt shuffled its offensive line, moving Lucas Nix from right tackle to right guard to replace benched Greg Gaskins. Jordan Gibbs, a 6-foot-7, 305-pound junior, will start at right tackle.
