A few slightly noteworthy tidbits from Maryland football coach Randy Edsall’s teleconference this afternoon …
* Right tackle R.J. Dill has a sprained knee but is expected to be fine.
* Freshman running back Jeremiah Wilson returned from a hamstring injury and scrimmaged Saturday.
“For his first scrimmage coming off the hammy, he had a pretty good day for himself,” Edsall said.
* Cliff Tucker, the erstwhile basketball swingman now trying to give football a go, had between 25 and 30 snaps Saturday. “You can see he’s been away from it for four years,” Edsall said. “I thought he made progress.”
* Fullback Taylor Watson, who is recovering from injury, had three or four snaps in the scrimmage.
* Edsall was reluctant to point out any standout individuals, but noted sophomore walk-on Josh Cary is playing well at right guard.
“One of the guys I thought that has taken advantage of his opportunities and watched what he did on Saturday was Josh Cary,” Edsall said. “Josh Cary had a really good day. He’s taking advantage of the fact some guys at his position weren’t out there on Tuesday and Thursday and he stepped in with the ones and accounted for himself very, very well.”
Maryland’s scholarship players listed on the depth chart at right guard are Justin Lewis and Pete White. Lewis is coming off surgery in the offseason and was not expected to participate in spring practice.
