Pitt quarterback Bill Stull was released from UPMC Presbyterian Hospital this morning after medical tests on his head and neck returned normal.
Stull, who was injured in the third quarter of the Panthers 54-34 loss to Rutgers yesterday, was held over night because it was originally thought to be a neck injury.
But Stull has been diagnosed with a concussion and a stinger and will undergo follow-up evaluations this week. He is questionable for Pitt's next game Saturday at Notre Dame.
"We are incredibly relieved and grateful that Billy is okay and out of the hospital," Pitt head coach Dave Wannstedt said in a statement released by the athletic department.
If Stull is unable to play against the Irish, sophomore Pat Bostick will be the starting quarterback.
