Terps' Walton could miss season finale

November 18, 1997|By Paul McMullen

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland will close out the season at Georgia Tech on Saturday but could be without junior receiver Kendrick Walton, who has a strained elbow ligament. Walton has caught a career-high 14 passes for 175 yards this season.

Tony Jackson, the freshman from Wilde Lake who began the season as the Terps' top punt returner, will play against Georgia Tech, then undergo knee surgery a week from today.

Jackson has been bothered since early October by a fluid buildup, and the surgery will remove the bursar sac.

Also on the injury front, Terps coach Ron Vanderlinden may pursue a medical redshirt and another season of eligibility for tight end Tim Brown.

A senior who entered Maryland as a junior college transfer last year, Brown suffered a knee injury in the season-opening loss to Ohio.
