Stephon Heyer Stepped on Mike Sellers

What it feels like to be stepped on by Stephon Heyer. (By Susan Walsh - AP)

When Mike Sellers was rolling around on the ground Saturday night, grabbing his knee and screaming, I was thinking the worst. Ok, not the worst worst--he seemed clearly to be still alive--but something bad.The good news came in pretty quickly--that it was just a contusion--and Sellers revealed the culprit this afternoon.

"Stephon Heyer's big behind fell on me, or stepped on me," Sellers said. "He told on himself, because he knew I was gonna see it on film. So he told me he stepped on me."

And what does it feel like to have Stephon Heyer step on you? Not that great.

"C'mon man, that's a 300-pound lineman with cleats stepping on the inside of your knee," Sellers explained. "And no give, because the other part of my knee was on the ground. But hey, it happens. It's football."

Sellers had the knee wrapped and didn't practice today, but he said he would definitely play against the New England Patriots Friday night.

"I'll be all right," he said. "I don't know what else to say, without going too far in depth. I'm fine. I'll be fine."

I guess it's a good thing Heyer was starting instead of Mike Williams.

This doesn't seem so bad... Heyer's clearly got a long way to go if he wants to unseat Haynesworth as the Skins' most fearsome cleater.

Maryland basketball will finish with a 15-16 record

No NCAA bid

No NIT bid

Maryland Football will finish with a 2-10 record.

Maryland's defensive line and linebacker corps are a joke --- no pass rush whatsoever and give up a ton of long yardage plays.

I have seen harder hitting teams in powder puff leagues.

The only hard hits the Terps make - are out of bound plays - which cost them an additional 15 yards - which are quite frequent.

California's running back - Best - will gain 296 yards in the opening game

I love it, when Maryland constantly gets embarrassed on national TV.


California -- 56
Maryland -- 10

It's hilarious to see Maryland win a game - and the very next week get clobbered by a Virginia Tech - Boston College.

It is great to see Maryland go down to a crushing defeat on the football recruiting front (the kids they have received commitments from - are a joke! - taking the bottom of the barrel)

Carolina Blue - Carolina WHITE - Go Tar Heels - Let's go Tar Heels !

hclark1: you are a loser. I think you just dropped your sippy cup too and you better get off your dads laptop before he's done his 12pack of bud
