A little good news/bad news scenario for Ralph Friedgen is unfolding on his defensive line.

Junior Jared Harrell is battling a knee injury, which the Maryland coach doesn’t think will be a serious long-term problem.


As for the short-term —- the Dec. 30 Humanitarian Bowl against Nevada —- that’s a bit iffy.

“He’s going to be all right,” Friedgen said. “They say he’ll be all right for game time, but he’s missing a lot of time now. Just going against this offense, it takes a lot of practicing. I think getting ready for these guys in one week would be tough.”

Sounds like it’s safe to call Harrell questionable with the game a week away. And so I will in the unofficial injury report I’ll cobble together later on today.
