Maryland head coach Randy Edsall touched on a number of subjects during his weekly teleconference Sunday, following the Terrapins' 50-21 win over Richmond. Below are news and notes:
Offense -- Brandon Ross (career-high 150 yards rushing, 1 TD)
Defense -- Jermaine Carter (team-high 8 tackles, including 1 TFL)
Special Teams -- Will Likely (Big Ten record 233 punt return yards, 296 all-purpose yards)
- Edsall says there were "no injuries to report at all" after Maryland's win
- Offensive lineman Derwin Gray will return to practice this week after injuries kept him out of training camp, but Edsall said the two-deep depth chart from last week vs. Richmond will remain the same this week vs. Bowling Green
- With that in mind, it would mean that "nicked up" offensive lineman Damian Price will remain a backup at right tackle
- Kicker Brad Craddock had eight touchbacks in ten kickoffs against Richmond. Edsall said that was the one area of his game that he wanted to see improvement in the offseason and Saturday was a positive sign. More on Craddock tomorrow.
- Quarterback Perry Hills struggled with the deep ball against Richmond, but Edsall says it will not come out of the game plan because he still wants to utilize all of the weapons the offense features. More on Hills later on Sunday.
- Edsall says the defense "looked pretty good" when he felt they were executing the way they were supposed to. Some early lapses that allowed Richmond to take a lead in the second quarter were attributed to a lack of execution
