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.

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.

- With Maryland losing its fifth game in a row, at least Terps fans could focus Saturday on the achievements of Torrey Smith , the star of this season's team. Smith had already broken his own Atlantic Coast Conference mark earlier this year for single-season kickoff return yardage. On Saturday, the sophomore wide receiver needed just 35 yards to break LaMont Jordan 's single-season school record of 1,840 all-purpose yards. He broke the record by catching a 21-yard pass from Jamarr Robinson in the second quarter.

Two other injured starters: senior right guard Jamie Wu (three bulging discs in his back) and sophomore cornerback Tony Okanlawon (pulled hamstring)

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - It was a bittersweet afternoon for Maryland quarterback Calvin McCall yesterday. McCall bounced back from a disappointing season opener against Temple to complete 19 of 29 passes for 215 yards and score on a 1-yard run against West Virginia. But it was in a 30-17 losing effort, so he didn't take much satisfaction in his stats, especially after his potential go-ahead touchdown was ruled short on a quarterback sneak with 6:38 left in the fourth quarter. "It was nice personally for me to come back like this," McCall said.
