Suter may face knee surgery

October 01, 2003|By Kevin Van Valkenburg

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland junior receiver Steve Suter didn't practice yesterday for the second straight day and is facing the possibility of knee surgery.

Suter suffered cartilage damage in his left knee against Eastern Michigan on Saturday. He said he thinks the injury occurred during the first half of the Terps' 37-13 win, but he kept playing anyway.

"It was pretty brutal on Sunday," Suter said.

Suter will try to practice today, but if he can't, he'll have surgery later this week, he said. The knee surgery would be his fourth, and the second on his left knee. It likely would keep him out at least two weeks.

"I can't make it any worse right now," Suter said. "It's just real sore. ... My improvement from yesterday to today was pretty dramatic, so we'll see."
