Either This Week or Next, Hartsfield Will Need Surgery
Coach Ralph Friedgen just finished up with his Sunday teleconference. Linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield did indeed break two bones in his hand. He will need surgery either this week or next and then miss three weeks. Friedgen is considering playing Hartsfield on Saturday against Virginia – who knows how effective he could be – and then having him miss the three weeks. The other option is to operate now and hope to have him back for the N.C. State game Nov. 7. Either way, not great news for Maryland’s beleaguered defense.
As for fellow linebacker Adrian Moten, he is probable for Saturday with a thigh contusion.
Offensive lineman Lamar Young is questionable with a shoulder injury.
Left tackle Bruce Campbell (knee) is questionable, as is punter Travis Baltz (high ankle sprain).
When asked about possible changes in any shape or form, Friedgen said, “We have to try to think outside the box because it’s not like we are going to change a whole lot of people.”
When pressed on what he meant, Friedgen said, “We are going to evaluate everything.” He declined to get into specifics.
