COLLEGE PARK - Maryland quarterback Shaun Hill said last night there is a chance he will miss Saturday's game against West Virginia with a right shoulder injury that occurred in the closing minutes of the first half of the season-opening 17-10 victory over Temple last Saturday night at Byrd Stadium. "It's a mild strain or a mild separation," said Hill. "They're both about the same thing. I'm still sore, especially in the morning. But I'm going to try and play Saturday. I want to play in every game this season.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden was still shaking his head yesterday over several calls that went against his team Saturday during a 30-17 loss to West Virginia in Morgantown. "There were some concrete things that were obvious on the tape," Vanderlinden said. "But you know I'm not allowed to comment on them. We sent the tape to the Atlantic Coast Conference office." The biggest call came with 6:38 left in the game when Maryland's Calvin McCall apparently scored on a quarterback sneak on fourth-and-inches from the goal line.

Jets (11-6) at Steelers (15-1) Line: Steelers by 9 Last time: Steelers 17, Jets 6 in Week 14. Ben Roethlisberger threw two interceptions and Chad Pennington three in a defensive scrum. Jerome Bettis threw the only TD pass on a halfback option, and ran for another. X-factor: Steelers WR Plaxico Burress missed the last game with a hamstring strain. His return opens up Pittsburgh's offense, and even if he doesn't make big plays, it should free up WR Hines Ward. Intriguing matchup: Pennington vs. elements.
