Pitt’s Tre Tipton has knee surgery, will miss remainder of season

Pitt wide receiver Tre Tipton (5) is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Senior wide receiver Tre Tipton, an Apollo-Ridge graduate, will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery Wednesday, Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi said.

This is the fourth time in Tipton’s five seasons at Pitt he suffered a season-ending injury. He missed the entire 2017 season after he was injured in a bicycle accident before the start of training camp. He returned last season and played in all 14 games.

Tipton, 23, played in three games this season before getting hurt. He caught seven passes for 81 yards and a touchdown. The 3-yard touchdown reception against Virginia in the opener gave Pitt a 14-13 halftime lead.

Narduzzi said Tipton might be able to get another year of eligibility next season.

“I think he has a chance to, if he wants to get that,” the coach said.

“Another tough deal for Tre. Incredible kid. We’ll miss him on the field and off the field. He’s one of our leaders, and the kids really respect Tre.”

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.
