Pitt QB Tom Savage should play against Virginia Tech

Concussion-like symptoms aren’t expected to keep Pittsburgh quarterback Tom Savage from playing in the school’s next game against Virginia Tech on Oct. 12.

Savage is recovering after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Virginia defensive back Daquan Romero in the fourth quarter of the Panthers’ 14-3 win this past Saturday. He was forced to leave the game in a daze.

A Pitt spokesperson said Savage had ‘mild symptoms’ and that he was making progress toward recovery.

Savage is off to a good start this season, completing 59 percent of his passes for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns in his first four games. As a result, Pitt has won three games in a row for the first time since 2010.

Since Pitt is off this week, that’ll give Savage extra time to recover. He’ll need to be clear-headed for that trip to Lane Stadium.

    I was at the game and, as painful of a game as it was to sit through, can’t understand why a). there was no flag thrown for targeting the head? And b). why is Romero not sitting the next game for targeting the head when a QB is giving himself up? So much for safety???

    Just found my answer. Same clown, Dennis Hennigan, that gave ND the game with a phantom PI call last year was on the field for this game.
