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.
