College Park -- Maryland quarterback Jordan Steffy, who suffered the second concussion of his career Sept. 29 at Rutgers, could be out as long as a month and will undergo more tests tomorrow, coach Ralph Friedgen said yesterday.

"It could be awhile with Jordan," Friedgen said. "You don't know on the concussions. ... He's shown some improvement on the tests, but they're going to need a lot more to be clear."

The injury-laden Terps got positive news on offensive lineman Andrew Crummey, who underwent surgery for a fractured fibula and was upgraded from a season-ending injury to possibly being able to play in the season finale.

Friedgen also gave updates on the following injuries:

Linebacker Rick Costa (neck) is out two to three weeks.

Defensive tackle Travis Ivey (torn right MCL) is out four to six weeks if no operation is necessary.

Linebacker Dave Philistin (shoulder) practiced and should play Oct. 20 against Virginia.

Offensive tackle Scott Burley (elbow) didn't practice but should play against Virginia.

Cornerback Kevin Barnes (neck) practiced in a non-contact jersey and should play against Virginia.

Wide receiver Danny Oquendo (ankle) practiced and should play against Virginia.

Linebacker Erin Henderson (knee) is questionable. heather.dinich@baltsun.com
