Priority No. 1, under all circumstances, for spring practice is to avoid new major injuries.

Mission accomplished for Maryland.


Yes, the Terps got nicked up a bit as the spring progressed. But the likes of Da’Rel Scott, Travis Ivey and Nolan Carroll are all expected to be back and ready to go when camp begins in August.

Plus, there were no injuries in today’s spring game, which is always a bonus.

It was also the highest-scoring spring game at Maryland since at least 1997, a 58-point outburst that surpassed the 42-14 game in 1999.

Quintin McCree finished with three touchdowns, and Adrian Cannon had two. Kevin Dorsey and Davin Meggett also scored, all of which ensured a rarity —- a Maryland spring game that wasn’t particularly boring.

More to come down the line, but it’s been a rather busy day and a half. Time to decompress before heading back to Lewisburg, Pa., tomorrow for another afternoon of lacrosse.
