There were a couple of setbacks for the Mountaineers since spring practice began.
Redshirt freshman Adam Pankey, an offensive tackle who figured to see a lot of playing time this year, underwent knee surgery for an ACL, and Holgorsen said he didn’t expect him back until September or October.
Holgorsen said that Pankey had shown more improvement than anyone else on the offensive line, so this is not a good thing at a position where there is not much depth.
And then sophomore defensive lineman Korey Harris, who had some playing time last year, was suspended indefinitely by Holgorsen.
He gave no details as to why he was suspended.

CBS Sports is reporting that former WVU quarterback Pat White has cancelled a workout with the New York Giants and is taking a physical exam with the Washington Redskins on Wednesday. If he passes he is expected to sign with the Redskins, who hope he can serve as backup to quarterback Robert Griffin III.
White, of course, was very similar to Griffin when he played at WVU, leading the Mountaineers to four bowl victories and setting the NCAA record for career rushing yards by a quarterback.
