Pitt fullback George Aston (35) celebrates his touchdown against Penn State in the second quarter Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016, at Heinz Field.

Receiver Tre Tipton and fullback George Aston participated in drills.

Tipton, a junior from Apollo-Ridge, missed last season because of a nonfootball knee injury. A fifth-year senior, Aston was limited to brief appearances in two games.

Aston had 10 touchdowns in 2016. Tipton has been hit by injuries during each of his three seasons with the Panthers.

"It's good to have Tre (Tipton) back out here today," offensive coordinator Shawn Watson said. "We really missed him. We felt him today, just in limited time, what he was able to do. We're being smart with him as we progress him along, but it was good to have him out there."

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
