The end of Maryland’s injury-filled season won’t include linebacker Darin Drakeford.

Joe Vellano might not be available, either.


The senior defensive end is listed as doubtful with an ankle injury suffered three weeks ago against Georgia Tech. Vellano was listed as questionable the last two weeks.

Drakeford, who has started 17 straight games, will miss Saturday’s finale at North Carolina with a head injury.

Wide receiver Levern Jacobs is also an addition to the injury report; he will miss the finale with a shoulder injury.

The full injury report:


WR Kerry Boykins (hip)
