Scott Questionable for Eastern Michigan Game

Heather Dinich reporting...

Maryland running back Da'Rel Scott, the team's leading rusher with 135.7 yards per game, is questionable for Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder, coach Ralph Friedgen said on his Sunday teleconference.

Scott will be limited to non-contact drills this week.

Well, I'm not sure it's a huge deal. Davin Meggett is playing great right now - more experience and confidence can only help. I'd hate to see Da'Rel come out against Eastern Michigan and get hurt and be out for the rest of the year, or something similar. My guess: he dresses, but doesn't start. Unless the team really needs him, I don't think he'll play.

Something else interesting, in the same article. 

Friedgen also said he might make a change to the kicking game, as Obi Egekeze has now missed five straight field goals, including a 27-yard attempt this past weekend.

"I'm still thinking that over," Friedgen said. "Before I make any decisions like that I probably want to talk to our staff and to Obi. We've gotta get better in that area, one way or the other."

That's good news, as well. This team can't compete in the ACC if they can't hit a field goal. Nothing against Obi, but he's not a good kicker. It's a shame, because he's a great Terp.
