Starting SAM linebacker Matt Robinson will miss yet another game for Maryland, as that shoulder injury will keep him out for the fourth contest this season. Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil, who recently lost his starting job at WILL to Yannick Ngakoue, will start in his place. Running back Albert Reid, defensive tackle David Shaw, safety Zach Dancel and long-snapper Christian Carpenter will also miss the game with injury.
In other news, Amba Etta-Tawo will start for Maryland at wide receiver in place of Marcus Leak. Leak is expected to play, and is not starting due to a coach's decision.
