Pittsburgh Quarterback Bill Stull Out Indefinitely After Suffering Injury

By David

In his first career start, junior Quarterback Bill Stull suffered a debilitating injury when his thumb was bent backwards on a handoff exchange in the third quarter.

Before Stull left the game, he went 14-of-20 for 177 yards and a touchdown to give the Panthers a 21-3 lead over Eastern Michigan. The former high school star was the backup to Tyler Palko last season and was awarded the opportunity to be Dave Wannstedt's starter after working extremely hard during the off-season.

Stull's injury will keep him out of next week's contest against Grambling and the following week at Michigan State. If the recovery process takes even longer it's highly likely that he could be out for an extended period of time.

In the mean time, 6-foot-3 freshman Pat Bostick is the front runner to receive the starting job, instead of fellow freshman Kevean Smith who went 2-of-4 for 18 yards in the absence of Stull.
