Maryland football injury report: WR Nigel King, DL Zeke Riser expected to play vs. FSU

October 3, 2013

(Doug Kapustin for The Washington Post)

Facing its biggest game of the Randy Edsall era, the No. 25 Maryland football team will return two key cogs at No. 8 Florida State. Wide receiver Nigel King, who injured his leg on the second offensive snap against Connecticut, was left off the latest injury report altogether, and defensive lineman Zeke Riser, a graduate student transfer from Houston who has yet to play this season, was listed as probable.

King, if fully healthy, should start at wide receiver opposite Stefon Diggs and Deon Long. The sophomore from Raleigh had caught three passes for 52 yards and one touchdown before incurring his injury on a blocking attempt at Rentschler Field three weeks ago.

Riser should make his Maryland debut, though could see his snap count limited after suffering a preseason ankle injury that has sidelined him until this point. Maryland’s bye week after a 37-0 drubbing of West Virginia, however, allowed the Terps to get healthy across the board. Only two unexpected injuries this week threw wrenches into the report.

Backup kicker Adam Greene sustained a hip/quad injury that will keep him off the travel roster, so third-stringer Brendan Magistro will fly to Tallahassee instead. Wide receiver Tyrek Cheeseboro, expected to make his first appearance of the season, suffered a concussion after getting into a bicycle accident early Tuesday morning. With King back, a healthy Cheeseboro would likely have only contributed on special teams, if anything, given Malcolm Culmer’s emergence at the position in King’s stead.

Wide receiver Daniel Adams (knee) will also travel and could play for the first time this year. The full injury report, without many other surprises, is listed below.
