Pittsburgh plans to use sophomore WR Tyler Boyd on punt returns in the fall, and is not concerned with the possibility of increasing his chance of injury.
"We don't look at it that way, that he's going to get killed," Panthers' special teams coach Chris Haering said. "We look at it just like you would on offense. We've got good guys that are out there blocking the returns. So our hope is you don't get free runners and guys that are going to get blown up." Boyd finished his true freshman season with 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns, breaking Larry Fitzgerald's record for receiving yards by a Pitt freshman. The former four-star recruit was ranked by Rivals as the No. 12 wide receiver in the 2013 class. "Tyler is a special kid," Haering said. "He is excited to do it, too — 100 percent bought in."
