From combined dispatches

Maryland tailback Da’Rel Scott remains questionable for Saturday’s game against Eastern Michigan, coach Ralph Friedgen said.

Scott, who ranks fifth nationally with 135.7 yards a game, suffered a sprained left shoulder in Saturday’s 35-27 defeat of California.

If the sophomore does not play, tailbacks Davin Meggett and Morgan Green and fullback Cory Jackson would assume larger roles for the Terrapins (2-1).

Friedgen also declared cornerback Richard Taylor (knee) and wide receiver LaQuan Williams (foot) out this week and said defensive end Mack Frost (knee) was doubtful to play.

To help compensate for the absence of Taylor and safety Terrell Skinner (high ankle sprain), freshman cornerback Cameron Chism and sophomore safety Dominique Herald are expected to burn their redshirts.

INDIANA: The NCAA has told the university to wait until Sept. 26 to respond to the latest allegation that the school failed to monitor its men’s basketball program.

In a letter to IU president Michael McRobbie, NCAA infractions committee chairwoman Josephine Potuto said Tuesday the committee is still finalizing part of its report on former coach Kelvin Sampson and his staff, who were accused of making more than 100 impermissible phone calls to recruits.

AUBURN: Tailback Brad Lester has returned to practice but his status remains uncertain for Saturday’s game with No. 6 LSU.

Lester was held out of contact drills in practice for 10th-ranked Auburn with a sprained neck sustained against Mississippi State.
