On Friday, three Pitt players – linebacker Eric Williams (pictured, No. 49), tight end Andrew Carswell and defensive linemen Khanyin Moslesy-Smith – were suspended after they were allegedly detained in a drug bust last Thursday night involving a SWAT team.
On Tuesday, Panthers coach Paul Chryst took another step and kicked Carswell and Williams off the team. Moslesy-Smith was not mentioned specifically in the release, but it’s assumed he’s still serving an indefinite suspension. Additionally, Chryst announced that freshman quarterback Tra’Von Chapman has been suspended for “a weekend incident away from campus.”
Williams finished fifth on the team in tackles last season with 52. He also had 4.5 tackles for loss, an interception and two fumble recoveries. Carswell had 13 receptions for 163 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 10 games.
