The Maryland football injury report, released by the school today,  has some holdovers and some additions. Starting receiver Deon Long (back) remains on the list. He's joined by receiver Amba Etta (shoulder). Both are out for this week. The receiver position, one of the team's deepest, is thinned for now. Defensive lineman Zeke Riser (ankle) and running back Jacquille Veii (ankle) were both spotted in walking boots at Saturday's scrimmage. They're also out this week.
