UM's Perry hurt again, might not play Saturday

September 26, 2002|By Gary Lambrecht

The planned return of Maryland junior tailback Bruce Perry on Saturday against Wofford was thrown into question yesterday, after Perry fell awkwardly while catching a pass, then left the workout early.

Terps coach Ralph Friedgen said Perry, the Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Year in 2001 who has yet to play this season while recovering from a torn groin muscle, will be re-evaluated today.

"The immediate diagnosis wasn't a major concern. The doctor thinks it's some scar tissue," Friedgen said. "I thought he was sharper [yesterday] than he was on Monday or Tuesday. We'll have to see how he is."

Friedgen said if Perry is ready to practice today, then he'll start on Saturday.
