Pitt's Adam Bisnowaty expected to be 100% for training camp

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Some good news came in a footnote of a recent Post-Gazette article about Pitt offensive lineman Adam Bisnowaty. Sam Werner writes that Bisnowaty is fully healed from his back injury this spring:

Bisnowaty, who missed most of spring practice with a back injury, said he is fully healed and lifting weights with the rest of the team. He expects to be 100 percent by the time Pitt starts training camp in early August.

That's extremely welcome news, if true. Bisnowaty's back injury caused some trouble last year for him in games and forced him to miss some time, sitting out the final four games. As Chris wrote earlier, taking some time off this spring allowed for redshirt freshman Jaryd Jones-Smith to get some more time on the field.

And while it's true that he didn't exactly take the world by storm on the offensive line, I've got to think that the injury contributed to that. A recurrence of the injury obviously brings some concern - back injuries are just no good. But when you factor in that he was only a redshirt freshman as well, it's obviously way too early to get all that concerned about his play from last season.

If Bisnowaty can get healthy in time for camp, I like his chances to improve next year. As a former four-star recruit, it's just too hard to forget his potential. A healthy return for him would be a huge boost for the Panthers' line. And with the news a few weeks ago that some of Pitt's other injured players were getting healthy, hopefully Pitt gets to training camp at 100% as a team - or close to it.
