Maryland will begin the 2012 season against William & Mary down a starting quarterback, starting defensive end, starting linebacker and starting safety.

What’s one more, really?

In an updated injury report Thursday, Maryland announced that starting running back Brandon Ross has a hamstring injury and will be sidelined for Saturday.

He tried to go this week, just didn’t feel it,” Randy Edsall said.

Ross, a redshirt freshman, will be replaced by a committee led by freshman Albert Reid but will include sophomore Justus Pickett and freshman Wes Brown. 

Pickett was the team’s third-leading rusher last season, gaining 274 yards and scoring a touchdown.

The amount of injuries the Terps are facing is unusually high. In all, Wednesday’s injury report included 13 scholarship players that will not play in Week 1.

    I have to wonder if with all of these players out for md, does it actually give W&M a shot now?
