Two other offensive lineman are also in the injury report.
Sal Conaboy (ankle) is doubtful and Justin Gilbert (knee) is questionable
Also out Saturday: safety Matt Robinson (groin) and wide receiver Kerry Boykins (hip/groin).
It will be the third straight game missed for Robinson, who has battled a spate of injuries since the beginning of last season.
Terps coaches are waiting for Robinson's return – he can now run on a treadmill and change direction – so the team can again pair two big, experienced safeties: Robinson and Eric Franklin.
Robinson may be back in a week.
In Robinson's absence, freshman Anthony Nixon is expected to start alongside Franklin. Nixon has made relatively few mistakes for a first-year defensive back. He told me he was nervous before his first start – against Wake Forest – but not so much last week against Virginia. He had a first-quarter interception that led to a score.
Another injury note: Running back Wes Brown (shoulder) is listed as questionable. He missed the Virginia game – a contest in which the Terps rushed for minus-2 yards.
If the Terps rush for zero yards against the Wolfpack, that will be a statistical improvement ("Gentlemen, let's go out and get zero!").
Seriously, Terps observers have been impressed with Brown. He's got size (210 pounds) and quickness, and his return could help a running game that Maryland knows it needs to jump-start.
We know Maryland will one day wear those "Pride" uniforms that generated so much buzz last season. Will Saturday's homecoming game be the day? I'm guessing not. But I expect to see the "Pride" a bit later in the season.
Here is the injury report:
