Robinson returns at linebacker against Iowa; several Terps out

Maryland senior linebacker Matt Robinson will return to the lineup on Saturday against Iowa.

Robinson's return is a big boost for a Maryland defense that struggled badly against Ohio State. He had missed three games with a shoulder ailment.

Via Roman Stubbs, in another bit of news, sophomore Yannick Ngakoue will start over senior Yanik Cudjoe-Virgil at outside linebacker. Ngakoue is atop the Big Ten's tackles for loss leaderboard.

Cornerback Daniel Ezeagwu has a meniscus injury and will miss the rest of the season. Josh Woods replaces him on Maryland's two-deep depth chart.

Backup nose tackle David Shaw sustained a lower-body injury this week. Defensive back Zach Dancel, long-snapper Christian Carpenter and running back Albert Reid are also out.
