Injuries at LT, QB significant setbacks for Maryland

Not a positive day in College Park if you are a Maryland fan.

Both of Maryland’s experienced quarterbacks, starter Jamarr Robinson and backup Danny O’Brien, are banged up. Both could play, but coaches would rather not play O’Brien, who has a high ankle sprain.

Worse, left tackle Justin Gilbert is done for the year with a torn ACL. R.J. Dill will move from right to left tackle in Gilbert’s place, while Pete DeSouza will now start at right tackle. A significant setback for Maryland, which already had offensive line worries. Gilbert was one of their best.

Worse still, a Sun Belt team is coming to Byrd Stadium on Saturday, a team that nearly beat Texas A&M and Rutgers in its first two games.

Your level of concern now?

The Gilbert news is disappointing. However, my expectations for a rebuilding year were 6-6 and a low tier bowl. If the Terps can get wins the next 2 weeks against FIU and Duke at home, they will have a chance at that. If they lose one or both, it makes that goal harder to reach.

Go Terps!

My concern is high. Very disappointing news. Terps have adversity ahead. Time to man up and rise to the challenge.

Damn! The O-line was the weak link in last season's team and now may be so again. Two banged-up, limping quarterbacks so early in the season ain't very promising either.
