Maryland quarterback Jordan Steffy returned to practice yesterday but has yet to be medically cleared to play and remains questionable for Saturday’s game against Georgia Tech.\

\ Steffy suffered a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit late in the second quarter of Saturday’s 34-24 victory at Rutgers, and Chris Turner entered to lead the Terrapins to a second-half comeback.\

\ “He did OK,” coach Ralph Friedgen said after practice. “He’s slow. He’s progressing and he’s a little bit better today than he was yesterday.”\

\ Friedgen said during the ACC teleconference Steffy would start if he was healthy, though he hedged from that position after practice.\

\ “It’s questionable,” Friedgen said. “I don’t know what I would do. I’m just waiting to see if I have a decision by game time.”\

\ Friedgen said linebacker Erin Henderson (knee) also remained questionable.


\ Well, there will be some kind of decision by the time the noon kickoff arrives on Saturday. Ralph is playing coy a bit this week, but his mind may well be made up by the team’s medical staff. Even if Steffy gets an OK from doctors, Friedgen probably has to consider weighing the benefits of holding him back if possible since the Terps’ bye is next week.\
