The most noteworthy practice absentee in the Big East thus far made a limited return on Thursday.
Pittsburgh defensive end Greg Romeus, the league's reigning co-defensive player of the year, worked out in individual drills but sat out of team sessions. He had missed the previous four days of practice.
Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Romeus is dealing with a muscle spasm.
"He's going to be fine," Wannstedt said. "We just have to make sure he is 100 percent before we get him rolling. I'm not [worried]. He is going to be back in plenty of time."
Romeus is a redshirt senior who shouldn't be too set back from missing a few August practices. You just have to hope the muscle spasm issue isn't one that lingers throughout the year.
