Terps’ Heyward-Bey questionable
Question of the Day
Maryland wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is questionable for Saturday's regular-season finale at Boston College with a leg ailment, according to the team's weekly injury report.
Coach Ralph Friedgen was unavailable to comment. Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, there was no media availability after Thursday's practice.
Heyward-Bey leads the Terrapins (7-4, 4-3 ACC) in receptions (38) and yards (561), and shares the team lead in total touchdowns (six). If available, the junior figures to be a significant factor vs. the Eagles (8-3, 4-3), who rank seventh nationally in rushing defense.
Heyward-Bey, who also has 208 rushing yards, has quieted since scoring in Maryland's first four games. In four games since an 11-catch, 101-yard outburst against Wake Forest last month, Heyward-Bey has 15 receptions for 185 yards and a touchdown.
Should Heyward-Bey not play, there is a significant drop-off to his backups' production.
Sophomore Emani Lee-Odai, Maryland's top reserve at Z receiver, has nine catches for 131 yards in his career. Redshirt freshman Quinton McCree, who is third on the depth chart, played almost exclusively special teams in two games earlier this season and has no career receptions.
Meanwhile, senior linebacker Trey Covington (back) is also questionable. Covington has played in 48 straight games, starting 43. His backup is redshirt freshman Derek Drummond, who had not played until the past two weeks. Rick Costa, Covington's backup for much of the season, was suspended after an arrest on three assault charges earlier this month.
