Not much in the way of news came out of today’s teleconference with Maryland football Coach Randy Edsall, but here are a few notes:
Edsall said the offense bested the defense during Saturday’s scrimmage. Edsall would like to see more “eye discipline” out of the defense. Right now, he said, too many guys are trying to make plays instead of simply taking care of their responsibilities. . . .
Junior tackle R.J. Dill suffered a knee sprain Saturday that is not expected to be serious, according to Edsall. Other than that, the coach said, the team made it out of the workout unscathed. . . .
No word yet on the status of freshman wide receiver Nigel King, who
has yet to practice with the team while issues with the NCAA Clearinghouse are sorted out. Edsall said he hoped to hear back from the NCAA by the end of the week, but he also noted he wasn’t sure that would happen. . . .
Basketball-player-turned-football-reclamation-project Cliff Tucker played 25-30 snaps during Saturday’s scrimmage, Edsall estimated. The coach said, “You can see that he’s been away from it for four years. But again, I thought he made progress.” . . .
Redshirt freshman running back Jeremiah Wilson has returned to practice after missing time due to a hamstring injury, Edsall said. Wilson took part in Saturday’s scrimmage.
