Maryland defensive end Quinton Jefferson will miss the rest of the season because of a right knee injury he suffered during the Terps' loss to West Virginia on Sept. 13. Jefferson, who will undergo surgery Friday, had 47 tackles, 7 1/2 tackles for a loss and three sacks while starting all 13 games for Maryland last season. He had eight tackles and a sack in the first three games this year. This is another blow for a Terps defense that has dealt with injuries to several key players since the season began in late August.

SAN DOMINGO -- The way Newell Quinton sees it, the old elementary school isn't a symbol of segregation. It's a reminder of the freedom that has endured since the first free black men settled here long before the Civil War. Quinton, 63, grew up in this rural village just a 20-minute drive from Salisbury. After retiring from the Veterans Administration, he headed home five years ago and built a house on land once owned by his great-grandparents. Now, he spends most of his time piecing together San Domingo's history and working on community projects such as restoring the Sharptown Colored School.

The unseasonably cool temperatures marking the beginning of training camp were gone Friday. The return of the summer heat left Maryland players bathed in sweat after practicing in pads inside Byrd Stadium. Quinton Jefferson was not complaining a bit. When he's challenged by football, the sophomore defensive end needs only remember the year he spent at Best Buy unloading boxes on the "graveyard" shift. Some people take a nature walk or go to a spa to get their head right. Jefferson spent the year after high school living with his parents and working in the stockroom of a Best Buy in Monroeville, Pa. The experience provided him perspective.

Forget trying to compress an unconventional 339-page nonfiction best-seller into a two-hour movie without sacrificing its magic or integrity. Or convincing a superstar like Sandra Bullock that surmounting cliched visions of a Christian Southern belle was just the challenge that she needed. When writer-director John Lee Hancock set out to film Michael Lewis' "The Blind Side," the story of Baltimore Raven offensive lineman Michael Oher's rise from abject poverty and illiteracy to academic and athletic success, the filmmaker immediately saw what his toughest obstacle would be. "Casting someone to play Michael Oher!"

Jeff Quinton was laid off from an information-technology job in early July and immediately began sending out resumes and making calls to find a new gig. At first, nothing. The Perry Hall resident, 35, got a few robot e-mail acknowledgments of his application and a rejection. Nothing like a real prospect. His health coverage runs out at the end of the month. This week the phone started to ring. A recruiting agency in Hanover was beefing up its help desk. A social media company in Washington was expanding.
