Carroll Breaks Leg, Likely Done For Season

Senior defensive back Nolan Carroll broke his tibia midway through the fourth quarter and likely is done for the season, Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen said. Carroll was carted off the field and taken directly to an ambulance.

Carroll's absence could be a critical blow for a defense that allowed James Madison to compile 417 total yards. Carroll's broken leg is the second significant injury suffered by the Terrapins in as many weeks. Last week at California, offensive tackle Bruce Campell went down with a toe injury that may keep him out a few weeks longer.

"I feel very bad for Nolan because he was playing so well and it's great to see how he has matured and developed in one year," Friedgen said. "He's very dear to my heart. I am praying everything will be okay for him because I really think he has a future."
