Maryland started five freshmen Saturday. That number could grow to six this week with wide receiver Marcus Leak listed as a starter.

Two notable players are missing from the depth chart at receiver: Kevin Dorsey and Ronnie Tyler. Dorsey missed the second half of Saturday’s game with an undisclosed injury, and it appears Tyler’s omission is based on how he’s played. The senior, who was suspended two games, has dropped several passes this season.

“Everything on the depth chart is usually more of a performance situation,” Edsall said. “The injury stuff comes out later in the week. As you saw, Kevin went down in the game. Everything here is pretty much based on production.”
