Costa: Campbell Will Not Play vs. James Madison

Maryland center Phil Costa said that left tackle Bruce Campbell, who suffered a turf toe injury against California, will not play against James Madison on Saturday. Costa said Paul Pinegar will move to left tackle, and that R.J. Dill will start in Pinegar's spot at right tackle.

Coach Ralph Friedgen declined to discuss the injury until Thursday.

I think they should sit him for both the JMU and MTSU games. Sitting him for the MTSU game is a little more risky, but we should still be able to beat them without Campbell. Also will give some of the young guys an opportunity to get some game experience and him time to recover.

If the head coach won't discuss an injury, a team member SHOULD NOT discuss an injury. His comments could get him benched. Reporters should not seek out players to provide information that the coach is not willing to provide. The reporters may find their access limited - remember what happened last year with men's bb (all post-game interviews with players were monitored)!

Wow, have to agree with TerpGrad. Friedgen has benched players for less in the past (tho would put the team in a real tough spot without their only 2 experienced lineman). Maybe sit Costa for a series is all we'll see.

If we couldn't beat MTSU with last year's OL...
