The season - and thus college career - of Pitt senior standout defensive end Greg Romeus is over because of a torn ligament in his knee.
Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt announced the news today at his weekly news conference and said the plan will be for Romeus to get a second opinion about whether surgery is required.
"He will work to get his knee healthy and begin to prepare now for the NFL," Wannstedt said.
Romeus played the opener against Utah but then needed back surgery and missed the Panthers next seven games but returned to the lineup last Thursday against Connecticut.
But Wannstedt said Romeus twisted his knee on a play while rushing the quarterback and that's when he injured it.
