\ The quick rundown:\

\ * Andrew Crummey: The senior right guard will have his broken left fibula operated on this week. Ralph is holding out hope Crummey can be back for a possible bowl game.\


\ * Travis Ivey: The reserve defensive tackle will have an MRI exam on his injured knee on Tuesday.\

\ * Rick Costa: The linebacker was airlifted out of College Park yesterday but was released from the hospital even before any of the beat writers were done their stories. Ralph says “it’ll probably be a week or two before he’s back playing.”\

\ * Jordan Steffy: The erstwhile starting quarterback still must undergo some tests, as ordered by team physician Yvette Rooks.\

\ As for who is starting Oct. 20 against Virginia?\

\ “It’s really a moot point until we know when Jordan is ready,” Friedgen said. “Chris is going to be the starter and we’ll see when Jordan is back and how sharp he is and where he’s at and then I’ll make the decision then.”\

\ Hmmm. \

\ * Erin Henderson: Ralph expects to know later this week if the linebacker’s knee injury will be healed in time for Virginia.\

\ * Da’Rel Scott: The redshirt freshman suffered a high ankle sprain and didn’t practice at all last week. Ralph sounded optimistic about having him back.\

\ As for some other nuggets, it looks like walk-on Paul Pinegar is next in line at guard now that Crummey is out. Dean Muhtadi, a transfer from Christopher Newport, is likely to continue filling in for Ivey.\

\ I asked about Tony Logan’s progress at quarterback, since he was the No. 3 guy yesterday. It turns out, Logan easily bested Jason Goode and Danny Oquendo in a tryout of sorts after practice last Monday for the emergency honors.\

\ “We had a package if we had to use him on Saturday,” Friedgen said. “Hopefully we can expand on that. He did throw the ball pretty well, and he has good speed. To teach him all the intricacies of playing quarterback in three days is ridiculous. We tried to keep it very basic to just try to finish a game if we try to have to.”\

\ Maryland will practice Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. I’ll have a few updates here and there sprinkled in over the next few days, including some midseason analysis of where the Terps have been, where they are and where they might go by the time the final weekend of November rolls around.\
