Just got done with Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen‘s teleconference.

Here’s the basics before I get back to tomorrow’s dead-tree story.


Tailback Da’Rel Scott has an AC sprain in his left shoulder and is questionable for Saturday against Eastern Michigan. He’ll practice noncontact throughout the week.

Wideout LaQuan Williams will undergo X-rays tomorrow on a foot injury —- the same thing that zapped the final few games of his season last year.

Cornerback Richard Taylor suffered an LCL injury in his knee and will under an MRI exam tomorrow. If he needs surgery, he’s done for the year. If not, it looks like he’ll be out four weeks —- or at least until after Maryland’s first bye week.

No news yet on whether Obi Egekeze will retain his job. But Ralph said if he did have a competition, walk-ons Nick Wallace and Mike Barbour would be the likely guys to push Egekeze.

(It also led to an unintentionally hilarious Ralphism —- referring to to Barbour as Barbaro. It took a lot not to snicker, but it’s not like Friedgen intentionally flubbed it, either)

Another guy that’s hurting is Mack Frost, who might have re-injured his knee. His status for this week is uncertain.

More to come later.
