09/28/2011 - The Pittsburgh Panthers suffered quite a loss Saturday with redshirt senior left guard Chris Jacobson, one of the most respected members of the team and a legitimate NFL prospect, suffering a season-ending injury to his left knee. Jacobson has been overshadowed throughout much of his career, as the Panthers boast one of the top guard prospects in the entire country in Lucas Nix. The team sent left tackle Jason Pinkston to the NFL last April (Cleveland Browns' fifth round pick). Despite the relative lack of national name recognition, the Pittsburgh coaching staff was mourning the loss of their co-captain. Jerry DiPaolo of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review was on hand to record Pittsburgh head coach Todd Graham's comments: "Chris Jacobson is one of the most respected people in our program," Graham said, "and I know every player and coach feels disappointment for him that he'll miss the rest of the year. Fortunately, we feel optimistic about his chances to receive sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA." It's a bad break for a good guy, but Jacobson would be the first to tell you, "That's football." Jacobson is expected to undergo surgery on the knee soon, perhaps as early as this week. This is the second catastrophic knee injury. Jacobson missed the entire 2007 season after tearing the ACL in his right knee during fall camp. According to DiPaulo, Graham is hopeful the NCAA will grant Jacobson a rare sixth year of eligibility. Jacobson currently ranks as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 14 guard for the 2011 draft. Nix ranks fourth. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

09/26/2011 - No one worked harder and no player meant more to the Pitt football team than senior left guard Chris Jacobson. That's why the bad news tonight from coach Todd Graham was especially difficult to accept. Jacobson, a starter since the beginning of 2010, will miss the rest of this season with a left knee injury that will require surgery next week. Jacobson, who also missed his freshman season of 2007 with a right knee injury, will apply for a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA. "Chris Jacobson is one of the most respected people in our program," Graham said, "and I know every player and coach feels disappointment for him that he'll miss the rest of the year. Fortunately, we feel optimistic about his chances to receive sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA." It's a bad break for a good guy, but Jacobson would be the first to tell you, "That's football." - Jerry DiPaola, TribLive.com

09/26/2011 - Senior OG Chris Jacobson missed the Notre Dame and is expected to be out for the rest of the season due to a left knee injury sustained in the Iowa game. Surgery is to be performed this week and Jacobson will seek a medical hardship waiver and a sixth-year of eligibility. He also had season-ending surgery on his right knee in 2007. - The Sports Xchange

09/21/2011 - OG Chris Jacobson was knocked out of the Iowa game with a knee injury. He was replaced by Cory King. - The Sports Xchange

08/13/2011 - KEYS TO SUCCESS: The first key to success will be also an area of concern, being the way the offense adapts to Coach Todd Graham's no-huddle, up-tempo offense after having played in Dave Wannstedt's pro-style, run-first offense. With that much will depend upon the improvement of quarterback Tino Sunseri, who had a roller-coaster first season as a starter last year. Quarterback play is a key in Graham's offense, especially his ability to read and react on the move. The offensive line must be rebuilt, replacing three starters. The biggest key to this being done successfully is Chris Jacobsen being converted from the starting left guard to the starting center this season. The final key to success will be how well RB Ray Graham handles being the featured back. He was a complementary player to Dion Lewis the past two years. He is a big-play back, capable of breaking games open, but is going to have to play a lot as there is not a lot of experienced depth behind him. - The Sports Xchange

07/11/2011 - 2011 OUTLAND TROPHY PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Chris Jacobson, Pittsburgh, G, has been selected one of 65 players named to Preseason Outland Trophy Watch List for the 2011 college football season. The Outland Trophy goes to the best interior lineman in college football, presented annually since 1946 and is the third oldest award in major college football. Forming the nucleus of Pitt's offensive line, both Jacobson and Lucas Nix are entering their senior seasons for the Panthers. Jacobson made the switch from guard to center this spring and Nix will play right tackle. Both are poised for successful senior seasons as they look to pave the way for junior running back Ray Graham. - Pitt football
