Maryland could play three quarterbacks Saturday
Like it or not, Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen may play as many as three quarterbacks Saturday against Virginia Tech.
That’s right, starter Chris Turner is still listed as questionable with an MCL injury to his left knee. Backup Jamarr Robinson, who saw his first significant action Saturday in the N.C. State loss, is guaranteed to play, and probably play a lot, but it remains to be seen if he will start and play the entire game. And then there is freshman Danny O’Brien, whom Friedgen has wanted to play the last two games. Friedgen said there is still a chance O’Brien could burn his redshirt by playing in one or more of the final three regular season games.
The other issue of note to emerge from Tuesday’s sparsely attended news conference was that linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield may play Saturday. Hartsfield (broken wrist) will practice without contact today. Running back Da’Rel Scott (broken forearm) who most likely return Nov. 21 against Florida State will also practice without contact this week.
Offensive coordinator James Franklin will remain on the field for the third straight game Saturday, and will likely operate in that capacity the rest of the season. The players asked Franklin to do it. Friedgen does not have a preference. And with a young team, it enables Franklin to better communicate and interact with players.
