Pitt Football: Dan Mason's Injury Keeping Him Sidelined

We all know about Dan Mason's injury and if you saw it, you know that it's no big surprise that he's still injured.

ESPN's Brian Bennett got a brief status update from head coach Todd Graham about Mason's injury and had it buried a bit in one of his recent posts.

Mason had a rough year last season that started with a demotion for his role as a passenger in an alleged hit and run involving Jason Douglas. Then came, of course, the gruesome leg injury.

At the time, there was optimism by Dave Wannstedt about a full recovery. But since then, pieces of information have come far and few between.

Bennett talked to Graham and, well, not much has changed and Mason is still hurting:

Linebacker Dan Mason, who dislocated his knee in last year's Miami game, won't be back for the spring either. Graham called his injury a "month-to-month" thing.

Month to month obviously makes it sound like a longer term thing. I've got no insight on the injury, so take this with a grain of salt. But hearing that (along with not hearing any optimism from Graham) makes it sound to me like Mason is out for most of this year, too - if not more. Again, I'm not basing that on anything other than my own, clueless opinions, but the fact that we haven't heard any kind of a timetable from Graham (who, admittedly, is still new to the job) doesn't sound good.
