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.
