If Maryland is going to have a chance at becoming bowl eligible, one of the things that needs to happen is it needs to get some guys off the injured list.
Here's the latest:
Ralph expects tight end Dan Gronkowski back in two weeks.
OL Andrew Crummey is likely to return for the season finale against N.C. State. The game before that, FSU, might be pushing it.
He's hoping to get LT Scott Burley back this week, but Burley is still in a boot, and so is his backup, freshman Bruce Campbell. Both have ankle sprains. If neither can go Saturday against UNC, it's walk-on Paul Pinegar to the rescue.
Ralph thought he might get Travis Ivey back, but said it "didn't go well with him yesterday."
The good news appears to be Cory Jackson. Sure, his hand is still in a cast, but it's not like he has to do rehab or anything. It's just a matter of allowing the incision to heal so there's no infection. The Terps will get him back, but it's not clear how much he will be able to do.
Da'Rel Scott got a hip pointer on Saturday, but is expected to play this weekend.
Mack Frost - gone.
Jaimie Thomas - gone.
Rick Costa - likely gone.
That's it. Not that they can afford any more.
