Signs Point To Hartsfield Trying To Play
Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen still has not made a definitive decision on linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield, who will miss three weeks once he undergoes surgery to repair a broken hand. Hartsfield practice with full contact Wednesday night. He may play Saturday against Virginia and then undergo surgery after that. My hunch is that that is exactly what will happen, but it remains to be seen how effective Hartsfield is against the Cavaliers.
Friedgen said it is “very possible” that backup quarterback Jamarr Robinson could see some action Saturday to mix things up. Friedgen said Robinson is coming along, but the surprising thing was that the separation between Robinson and the quarterbacks behind him is not that large. "He is developing," Friedgen said. "I think the other guy is developing, too, Danny O'Brien. I think they're pretty close right now. Jamarr has his strengths and Danny has his strengths. I see them both getting better. I like the kids we have on the scout team.”
Friedgen said he would prefer not to play true freshman offensive lineman Pete White in order to keep his redshirt. But he said he may need to play him this season, perhaps even on Saturday.
