COLLEGE PARK - Nothing has been said. Deon Long has just seen the unmistakable looks of disgust Maryland coach Randy Edsall gives him whenever Long makes a mistake. The wide receiver said he was better and sharper Wednesday compared to the first two sessions of preseason practice for the Terrapins. But even he acknowledged that he has had a lackluster start to camp. Long uncharacteristically dropped passes during the first two practices. He jumped offsides twice Monday and Tuesday, which drew some of those looks from Edsall.

Something was missing for the Navy football team as it prepared last spring for the 2011 season. The practices were quieter, and for those on defense, a little too easy. What was missing - in retrospect, who was missing - was longtime defensive coordinator Buddy Green, who sat out spring practice after complications following gall bladder surgery. Even then, after Green returned for his 10th season, fourth-year Ken Niumatalolo knew that the Midshipmen might be in trouble defensively when the season began.

CHICAGO -- Stefon Diggs has typically been out on the practice field with Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown at least once a week leading up to preseason practice. He has been running routes, stretching his legs and continuing to work his way back from the broken his right fibula  that ended his season just seven games into last year. And while the leg may have prevented him from taking part in the majority of spring practice, the junior wide receiver said Monday at the Big Ten media days that it's no longer an issue.

- With no crowd noise, much of the sound coming from Maryland's spring football practice Tuesday was generated by the "pop" of collisions on the field. Among the players initiating the most contact was Brandon Ross, a running back with a physical style. The 5-10, 205-pound player is competing with sophomore Justus Pickett for a starting spot. "He has the ability to hit the home run with that closing and finishing speed," said offensive coordinator Mike Locksley of Ross, whos is from Newark, Del. "Very explosive, and not just an outside guy. He's a guy that runs physical in between the tackles.

When the Navy football team begins spring practice Monday, the Midshipmen will be without their two senior captains because of injury, coach Ken Niumatalolo said during Tuesday's spring football luncheon in Annapolis. Fullback Alexander Teich and defensive end Jabaree Tuani are being held out of all of spring practice for precautionary reasons, but both are expected to be on the field when Navy opens its season Sept.3 against Delaware at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

A few weeks before the 2013 football season started at Navy, Ken Niumatalolo sat in his office and talked about how it was the most talented bunch of Midshipmen he had been around as both the team's head coach and as an assistant under both Paul Johnson and Charlie Weatherbie. Going into his seventh season as head coach, Niumatalolo knows that this year's team - led by junior quarterback Keenan Reynolds - could be even better than the one that finished 9-4 last fall by sweeping its fellow service academies and topping off the season with a contentious bowl victory over Middle Tennessee State.

With C.J. Brown back in a limited role after missing last season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, and Perry Hills and Caleb Rowe continuing to rehab their own knee injuries, Maryland coach Randy Edsall said Monday that his two healthy quarterbacks will be off-limits to contact when spring practice starts Saturday. Edsall might not be able to see how junior transfer Ricardo Young can take a hit, but he will surely make some determinations as to whether the former Gatorade Player of the Year at H.D Woodson High in Washington can challenge Brown for the starting job going into the 2013 season.

Maryland opens football spring practices this Saturday. Coaches say the defense will emphasize improving red-zone defense and tackling techniques. On offense, coaches say the team will concentrate on minimizing turnovers. “A lot of people use springs for a lot of different reasons - fine-tune the offense, fine-tune the defense ... do goal-line, do red-zone defense,” defensive coordinator Brian Stewart said Wednesday. “Nevada-Reno, they put in a pistol in the spring.

Only 82 days after playing North Dakota State in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision national championship game, coach Rob Ambrose and Towson will open their spring practice season today at Johnny Unitas Stadium at 5:30 a.m. This marks the fourth consecutive year that the Tigers will stage their practice sessions in the early morning. "I truly believe that the early-morning practice sessions helped us during our playoff run last season," said Ambrose, who is starting his sixth season as Towson's head coach.

COLLEGE PARK - There was the torn labrum, the chipped bone, the groin injury, the problematic rotator cuff. Each has taken a toll on Maryland outside linebacker Matt Robinson , testing his body and his will. Seasons come and go for Robinson, but injuries often linger. When spring comes, he often is still healing from the year before. But this season, the savvy rising senior is healthy. As much as any Maryland player, Robinson was eager to greet the arrival of spring practice Saturday.

Maryland linebacker Shawn Petty, who started four games at quarterback in 2012, is leaving the program after two seasons, coach Randy Edsall  wrote Tuesday on his Twitter account . Petty played in all 13 games last season and made 24 tackles, including two sacks. But Terps fans are more likely to remember how Petty stepped in as a freshman in 2012 and played quarterback after injuries knocked out the four players ahead of him at the position. The 235-pound Petty, who had played quarterback at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt , was serviceable as a passer.

When you're Maryland defensive end Joe Vellano, a 300-pound offensive lineman blocking the way to the backfield typically is nothing more than a minor inconvenience. Against a Terps offensive line ransacked by injuries and transfers, that's especially true. So it was hardly a surprise, then, to see Vellano, a likely preseason All-America pick next season, get more than a few free runs at quarterbacks C.J. Brown and Ricky Schultz in the team's first spring practice Saturday. If only he could've done anything once he got to them.

COLLEGE PARK -- It was August 2012 and Wes Brown was meeting the media for the first time as a Maryland football player. Athletic department staff taped a name tag to the freshman's chair for the benefit of reporters. Brown, a big tailback with impressive quickness, did not seem daunted by his anonymity or lack of experience. He expected to play quickly and, sure enough, almost immediately became one of the team's most valued runners. A year and a half later, as the Terps open practices Saturday, Brown is preparing to again address the media.
