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.

COLLEGE PARK -- 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 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 with a 21-yard reception from Jamarr Robinson in the second quarter.

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.

On a day Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden closed most practices to shield his team from the growing number of college football spies and the increasing availability of information on the Internet, he also praised LaMont Jordan for his first scrimmage. "LaMont ran with tremendous determination," said Vanderlinden of the running back some are touting as a Heisman Trophy candidate. "He had about nine carries for some good yardage. I was impressed with how hard he ran." The 2-hour, 15-minute scrimmage behind closed doors also featured the continuing duel between Calvin McCall and Shaun Hill for the No. 1 quarterback job. "Calvin and Shaun continued to split time, and they both looked good," said Vanderlinden.

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.
