Maryland was without one projected starter – cornerback Dexter McDougle – the last two days.
Coach Randy Edsall doesn’t expect that to last long.
“He should be getting back this week, I would think,” Edsall said Saturday. “Right Dex? Dexter, you’re going to be back this week, right?”
At just that moment, McDougle was walking by.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah,” McDougle said.
“All right,” Edsall said. “Other than Justin Anderson, that’s really all we have. Some of the guys you saw on the sideline today, they should be back probably Tuesday since Monday’s an off day.”
Among the other players out with unspecified ailments: Wideout Adrian Coxson, defensive back Avery Graham and tight end Dave Stinebaugh.
Another tight end, junior Matt Furstenburg, was not at practice Saturday because he was attending his grandmother’s funeral.
