A surprise on Maryland's injury report: linebacker Kenny Tate is listed as doubtful for Georgia Tech. We don't know why yet.

Tate had nine tackles and an interception against Towson last week. He's 11th in the ACC in tackles at 8.8 per game.

His absence would be a blow to a defense already without linebacker Darin Drakeford and defensive lineman Andre Monroe, among others. Maryland started three first-year players on defense against Towson last week.

Tate plays a hybrid position called "Star." Behind him on the depth chart is Mario Rowson, yet another redshirt freshman.
