Da’Rel Scott, as most Maryland fans know, fractured the radius bone in his left forearm Saturday and is expected to miss at least the next five games.

So where does that leave everyone else?


Well, Davin Meggett is the obvious starter. Gary Douglas, who earned his first seven career carries, is the No. 2 back.

On the depth chart, true freshman D.J. Adams is listed as the third-string back.

And today, coach Ralph Friedgen talked about possibly concocting a package for the slick Caleb Porzel, a true freshman who was sidelined from late in camp to the start of the week with a leg injury.

Which begs the obvious question: Is Morgan Green, who hasn’t taken a handoff since garbage time of the opener at California, pretty much out of the picture?

“He’s not totally out of it,” Friedgen said. “But we’ve got some young guys. Let’s see what they can do.”

Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the redshirt junior, is it?

Green did play on the Terps’ punt block team on Saturday. But given that Friedgen mentioned Meggett, Douglas, Adams and Porzel and needed a question about Green to address his status, it seems rather unlikely he’ll receive any handoffs anytime soon.
