Maryland's first week of camp is concluding, with the quarterback battle still fully underway. Daxx Garman reportedly had a better day than Caleb Rowe, but Rowe appears to still be leading the overall picture.
QB completion might end sooner than expected. Sounds like Saturday's scrimmage will play a big role. Caleb Rowe still looks like the leader.— Josh Stirn (@Josh_Stirn) August 14, 2015
No decision made on the QB battle. Edsall said he wants to make one soon, though, so they can get some continuity.— Ryan Baillargeon (@RyanBaillargeon) August 14, 2015
Maryland has added one more expected piece at the position, former Minnesota QB/WR Dexter Foreman. A former three-star prospect out of Texas, Foreman is a walk-on addition.

Foreman did drills with QBs at practice today but wasn't in pads and didn't participate in scrimmage portion. https://t.co/rWNmueQDPM— Ryan Baillargeon (@RyanBaillargeon) August 14, 2015
#LT Edsall said he is still getting up to speed and should be in full pads for Monday's practice.— Ryan Baillargeon (@RyanBaillargeon) August 14, 2015
As far as injuries go, no new news. With Abner Logan out, Jefferson Ashiru moves over to WILL (he had previously been splitting SAM with Jalen Brooks).
Edsall said no surgery date set for Abner Logan. Jefferson Ashiru has moved over to his spot. Edsall's liked what he's seen from him.— Ryan Baillargeon (@RyanBaillargeon) August 14, 2015
#LT Brock Dean saw first team reps at OLB with Ashiru out with a minor bug today. Jalen Brooks and Avery Thompson competing at the SAM spot.— Josh Stirn (@Josh_Stirn) August 14, 2015
Another good note, from Daniel Martin.
Cornerback Will Likely told CSN after Friday's practice that he has set a new goal. Each practice, he wants to force three turnovers. He fell just short on Friday with only two, but an aggressive strip during scrimmages hints at what we'll see in 2015 from the known ballhawk in Maryland's secondary.
