Sandwisch unable to start tomorrow

September 20, 1991|By Mike Preston

Injured Maryland quarterback Jim Sandwisch will not start tomorrow's game against West Virginia at Byrd Stadium, two sources on the football team said yesterday.

Neither Maryland coach Joe Krivak nor Sandwisch would comment yesterday, as Sandwisch practiced only lightly, and the Terps concluded their heavy workouts for the week.

Sandwisch, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound senior who has completed 29 of 49 passes for 212 yards but has thrown two interceptions, threw a couple of passes yesterday.

Junior John Kaleo, a 5-11, 190-pound All-American from Montgomery College-Rockville, will start in Sandwisch's place.

If Kaleo falters, the Terps would go with true freshman Scott Milanovich, 6-3, 210 pounds, from Butler, Pa., who has been impressive in practice.

Sandwisch, however, is expected to dress and could play depending on the success of Kaleo, and, if he plays, Milanovich.

Sandwisch, who has tendinitis in the elbow and shoulder of his right throwing arm, re-injured the arm in the first half of Saturday night's 31-17 loss to Syracuse. Kaleo replaced him at the start of the second half.

Kaleo completed eight of 19 passes for 83 yards against the Orangemen, but he was intercepted three times.

Also yesterday, Maryland senior running back Troy Jackson was declared fit after slightly pulling a left hamstring in practice Wednesday. Senior starting cornerback Scott Rosen will not play for the second consecutive game because of a pulled hamstring.
