Tight end Yeatman sidelined six weeks with broken finger
A setback on the injury front tonight in College Park. Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen said that senior tight end Will Yeatman is out six weeks -- that's the estimate -- with a broken finger that he suffered in Thursday's practice. Friedgen got the word today that it was indeed broken. Yeatman, who is expected to play a large role for the Terrapins, went up for a pass Thursday and may have jammed it. He underwent surgery today and a screw has been/will be placed in it.
Tight end Lansford Watson, meantime, will try to practice next week with a brace on his knee. His MCL is the issue -- a partial tear.
Tight end was expected to be a strong position for Maryland and may still be. But these are a couple setbacks early in training camp.
"It will be tough on Will," Friedgen said. "He didn't have spring practice and now will miss training camp."
Friedgen said Friday's practice was not a good one. The energy just was not there. We'll see how they do Saturday in preparation for the start of two-a-days on Monday and a scrimmage later Monday.
Every minute of practice is closed to the media starting, well, right now.
