With LT Gilbert injured, Friedgen examines three options

The prime injury concern – serious injury concern – involves left tackle Justin Gilbert, who injured his left leg in the third quarter in Saturday’s 31-17 loss at West Virginia. Friedgen said there was cartilage damage and that an MRI on Monday will answer questions about the severity of the injury. There was some swelling but not as much as expected.

Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen has three options with Gilbert out, at least for the time being.

1) Move backup left tackle Nick Clemm, a redshirt freshman, up to the starter.
2) Move center Paul Pinegar to left tackle and second-string right guard Bennett Fulper to starting center.
3) Move starting right tackle R.J. Dill to left tackle and promote backup right tackle Pete DeSouza to starting right guard.

Friedgen wants to look at FIU and pinpoint its defensive line’s strengths and weaknesses before making a decision.

Hope Gilbert's injury isn't season ending. Anyhow, Gilbert hope you recover soon.

Franklin STINKS! Anyone who follows college football can take his job. Yes! His play calling and recruiting is that aweful.
