Running through the 18 players listed on Maryland’s injury report for Saturday’s game against N.C. State



QB C.J. Brown (knee)
P/K Nick Ferrara (hip)
DE Andre Monroe (knee)

None of these three have played at all this season, and Ferrara will not return next year for a fifth season.


WR Kerry Boykins (hip/groin)
G Bennett Fulper (turf toe)
S Matt Robinson (groin)

Boykins will sit out for the third time in five games. … Josh Cary will likely draw the start in place of Fulper, who left last week’s game in the second half. … Robinson will miss his third straight game, fifth of the season and 14th in 16 contests dating back to last year. Anthony Nixon will start in his place.


C Sal Conaboy (ankle)

The sophomore left last week’s game at halftime, though tried to sneak his way back in. Look for Evan Mulrooney to get the nod if Conaboy can’t go. Before last week, Mulrooney had played one snap in his career.


DE Justin Anderson (ankle)
TB Wes Brown (shoulder)
T Justin Gilbert (knee)

Anderson has played in five of six games this season as a reserve, collecting six tackles. … Brown sat out last week’s game with injury. He is Maryland’s leading rusher with 150 yards. … Gilbert missed some time last week. If he can’t play, Nick Klemm is the most logical replacement. He filled in for Gilbert at times against Virginia.


G De’Onte Arnett (ankle)
LB Darin Drakeford (thigh)
DE A.J. Francis (back)
LB L.A Goree (neck)
NT Darius Kilgo (ankle)
T Nick Klemm (knee)
LB Kenneth Tate (knee)
DL Joe Vellano (foot)

Arnett missed last week’s game with injury. … Drakeford leads the Terps with 4.5 sacks and is second on the team with 6.5 tackles for loss. … Francis has made 29 career starts, tied for third on Maryland’s current roster. … Goree has missed the last two games after injuring himself Oct. 6 during warmups before the Wake Forest contest. … Kilgo has started five of six games this year. … Klemm is Maryland’s top reserve tackle. … Bank on seeing Tate on the injury list every week. … Ditto for Vellano, whose presence on this list is as a consistent as his play on the field.
