A simple mailbag question on a Sunday morning from loyal reader Slatter:

How many redshirts have the Terps burned so far this year?

After two games, that number stands at five.

* Kicker Nick Ferrara, who connected on last night’s 26-yard field goal to clinch the victory in overtime.

* Guard Bennett Fulper, who became the first interior offensive lineman in Ralph Friedgen’s tenure to start as a true freshman last night.

* Linebacker Darin Drakeford, who has popped up on several special teams units.

* Defensive tackle Zach Kerr, who attended prep school last year and played a little bit more last night than in the opener.

* Defensive end Isaiah Ross, who got some run early in the fourth quarter and almost immediately made a nice play.

But that’s probably not the end of the list.

Cornerback Dexter McDougle has a much better chance of playing after Nolan Carroll’s season-ending broken leg.

Safety Eric Franklin’s chances of getting in go up with each week Jamari McCollough is out.

And linebacker Avery Murray, who arrived a semester early, could eventually factor in.
