Pat Fitzgerald announced the football team's schedule for spring practice on Monday.
The Wildcats will convene on February 27 and will workout twice a week leading up to the spring scrimmage at Ryan Field on April 13. The time of the scrimmage has yet to be determined.
Fitzgerald also announced offensive linemen Matt Frazier, Paul Jorgensen, Jack Konopka, Alex Pietrzak and defensive linemen Deonte Gibson, and Will Hampton will not participate in team activities. It's the same for running back Michael Panico, wide receivers Kyle Prater and Andrew Scanlan, super back Jack Schwaba and defensive backs Nick VanHoose and Jarrell Williams.
A university spokesperson said those players will not participate because of physical maintenance issues such as offseason surgeries and all are expected to be ready for the start of fall camp.
Fitzgerald is expected to elaborate more on specific players when meeting with reporters on Wednesday morning.
