Cornerback Chism back from hamstring pull

(I will be joining Tracee Hamilton at 9:30 a.m. Friday to take college football questions during her online chat, so please stop by and ask away. Thanks.)

Here are some quick notes from Wednesday night's media session with Coach Ralph Friedgen:

He is still waiting on sophomore kicker Nick Ferrara to heal up from his groin pull. Ferrara needs to get back on the field and prove he can be consistent. Punter Travis Baltz, who may perform the place kicking duties Monday against Navy, has been pretty good from 42 yards and closer.

Friedgen on running back Da'Rel Scott: "He is a man. He is grown up. He is also a better route runner, a better pass protector."

Friedgen on his team: "They are much improved from what we were last year."

With a very young team, Maryland kind of froze in the season opener last season against California. With a team that remains young, Friedgen doesn't expect the same nerves Monday, saying, "I don't think we should have stage fright."

Friedgen said starting quarterback Jamarr Robinson has turned in his best two practices of camp this week.

Cornerback Cameron Chism, who has battled a nagging hamstring pull, is back at practice and should be ready to go Monday.
