Carroll's Leg Will Need Three to Six Months to Heal
Senior cornerback Nolan Carroll, one of the team’s four captains, entered the Gossett Team House cafeteria yesterday afternoon to meet with reporters for a few minutes. Carroll broke his right leg in the Sept. 12 victory over James Madison, and his career is over. Carroll said it will take three to six months to heal and that he should be ready to go for workouts before the NFL draft.
“The boot will probably be off in late November,” he said. “They might end up putting a splint on it just so I can walk around, then in a couple of weeks take the splint off and I should be walking regular by December.”
Carroll said it was obviously difficult dealing with the injury at first but “the support group of coaches, players and my family just kept me up. It has not really affected much of the future for me. I am optimistic about everything and I just go from there.”
Carroll said Maryland has a team meeting Monday and the “main focus was not turning the ball over. Not creating mistakes that have killed us. We should reasonably, right now, be 3-1, not 1-3. A lot of that has come with the turnovers, the penalties. It is just the small things that are really killing us right now. If we can improve on not making those mistakes, we should be fine.”
