Maryland head coach Randy Edsall held his weekly teleconference with the media on Sunday after his team’s 35-17 victory over South Florida the day prior. Here are some bits of news and a few notes, along with game ball winners.
Offense -- Taivon Jacobs, WR (8 receptions, 107 yards, 1 TD)
Defense -- Roman Braglio, DL (7 tackles, 2 sacks, 2.5 TFL)
Special Teams -- Ty Johnson, freshman RB (2 KR, 66 yards)
- Edsall had more details on the injury that will sideline defensive back Antwaine Carter for the season. On Saturday, he said it was a Lisfranc, or midfoot injury. Sunday he elaborated, saying Carter broke a bone in the foot. He will undergo surgery on Tuesday.
- Aside from Carter, Edsall says there were no new injuries that would limit player availability this upcoming week.
- Edsall again reiterated that he was fully in support of the targeting penalty called against Wes Brown and the ensuing ejection. He said he still does not believe there was malicious intent behind the hit, just that Brown used poor technique. Brown will not miss time against West Virginia because the play took place in the first half.
- Maryland’s offensive line still has not allowed a sack this season. And they are still without two cornerstones for the future, Damian Prince and Derwin Gray, at full health. Prince saw reps against South Florida and Edsall says he has “made improvements.”
