Lingering injury puts Rosen in hospital

October 08, 1991|By Sandra McKee

Maryland senior starting cornerback Scott Rosen, who has missed three games with a "pulled hamstring," has been admitted to Sibley Hospital in Washington, D.C.

He will spend two or three days in traction, as doctors try to figure out exactly what is wrong, school officials said. Rosen, a tri-captain, pulled the hamstring during preseason practice. He played in the season opener, but has been out since then with a hematoma above the hamstring and an aneurysm below it.

Although Maryland officials said that his playing status was still to be determined, Rosen told The Sun he will sit out the rest of the season and apply to the NCAA for a medical redshirt, enabling him not to lose a year of eligibility.

The situation is causing the Terps to be very careful with Rosen's counterpart, senior cornerback Mike Thomas, who slightly pulled his hamstring against Pitt last Saturday. At first, Thomas was expected to be back for this Saturday's 12 o'clock game at Georgia Tech, but he now is listed as questionable.
