An injury of some sort forced Kedon Slovis to leave Pitt’s game against a ranked opponent (Tennessee) just before halftime. The team’s backup quarterback, Nick Patti, sprinted out onto the field as he remained in the locker room.
In addition, the starting signal caller for Pitt is reportedly not coming back. Kedon Slovis is “not expected to return,” according to the latest press box announcement.

On the day, Slovis finished with a 14-for-24 completion percentage, 195 passing yards, one touchdown, and an interception. By halftime, Pitt was down 24-17 to the Volunteers after a fumble led to a field goal just before the break.
Slovis threw for 308 yards and a touchdown on 16 of 24 passing in Week 1’s win over West Virginia. Due to Slovis’s injury, Pitt substituted Nick Patti for the rest of the contest. He threw for 79 yards and a score, connecting with Jared Wayne from 4 yards out with 2:23 remaining in the game.
Slovis was the backup quarterback for the 2019 season, behind JT Daniels, who was the starting quarterback. After Daniels went down with a season-ending knee injury in the season opener against Fresno State, Slovis got his first collegiate start.
The next week, in Slovis’s first start, he led the team to a 45-20 victory over the 23rd-ranked Stanford Cardinal, setting a school record for most quarterback touchdown passes. Slovis received recognition as the PAC-12’s Rookie of the Week for his accomplishments.
The following week, Slovis started for the team on the road against BYU, where he would throw three interceptions in a 30-27 overtime loss. Slovis started the next game at home against the 10th-ranked Utah Utes, but he was knocked unconscious in the first quarter with what may have been a brain injury.
The Trojans would pull off an unexpected 30-23 victory behind the play of backup quarterback Matt Fink. After the event, the team decided to place Slovis in the concussion protocol and bench him for the upcoming game against Washington (an away game).
For the next game, a close loss against ninth-ranked Notre Dame, Slovis would start once again. After that setback, Slovis led the Trojans to two consecutive victories, including a rout of Arizona and a come-from-behind victory in USC’s first road game win of the season against Colorado.
Narduzzi won’t disclose info on injuries but says he saw Kedon Slovis in the locker room after the game. Slovis told him he “feels good.”

Slovis received his second PAC-12 Freshman of the Week Award for his efforts in Colorado’s win. After setting the USC record for pass attempts in a 56-24 blowout defeat to Oregon, Slovis returned to his home state of Arizona and established another school mark with 292 passing yards and 4 touchdowns in the first quarter of a 31-26 victory against Arizona State.
