Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown may practice this week. He may not. Either way, Terps coach Randy Edsall likely will not have much to say about Brown prior to Saturday's game against No. 22 Ohio State. Brown suffered a sprained left wrist against Indiana Saturday and did not play during the second half. “We'll see if he can practice,” Edsall said. “But we won't have anything [on his status] until game-time.” The Big Ten does not require its coaches to put out injury reports during the week, so it would not make much sense strategically for Edsall to update Ohio State on Brown's status if he does not have to. Without knowing whether Brown will play, Ohio State will likely have to spend time preparing for Brown as well as backup quarterback Caleb Rowe, a traditional pocket passer who brings a different skill set to the table than the dual-threat Brown.

Randy Edsall surely loved sophomore wide receiver Stefon Diggs ' 41-yard touchdown reception, but the Maryland coach seemed not to be happy with what came along with it. Diggs high-stepped as he ran down the sideline before flipping into the end zone in front of the Maryland student section in the second quarter. He had taken a swing pass and turned it into a long touchdown in Maryland's 47-10 victory over Old Dominion. "I think it is my responsibility to coach the young men up," Edsall said after the game.

COLLEGE PARK - Stefon Diggs got up from his chair, wrapped a towel around his shoulders, grabbed a sports drink and headed to the Maryland locker room. His work for the day was done. Diggs, the Terps' sophomore wide receiver-returner, expended less energy on football Saturday than he did behind a table signing autographs for fans at Byrd Stadium. Coach Randy Edsall decided to rest Diggs and starting quarterback C.J.Brown during Saturday's Fan Appreciation Day scrimmage. Diggs, the team's star, stood on the sideline during the scrimmage, flipping a ball up and down.

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland star receiver Stefon Diggs was relegated to working with the second-team offense for most of the second half of preseason practice, and coach Randy Edsall made clear he would remain with the second team until he improved. Edsall was trying to motivate Diggs, and it worked. "The good thing is with Stefon, I did something there, and it motivated him and it got him back on track, and sometimes you have to do that," Edsall said. "You all have kids. You know how it is. You've got to do the same thing.

COLLEGE PARK -- A week from now, Maryland will be in Indiana for its first Big Ten game and the beginning of a gantlet that includes eight straight against conference teams. The Terrapins will likely be underdogs in most, if not all, of those games. That makes Saturday's game against Syracuse that much more important. Maryland's first goal each year is to qualify for a bowl game, a task that requires a team to win at least six games. The Terps (2-1) could still win enough to qualify even if they don't win Saturday.

COLLEGE PARK -  At different points, Maryland's media relations staff is responsible for tracking down Terps players. Some players can be more difficult to find or get in touch with. But Matt Taylor, Maryland's primary media contact for football, says sophomore cornerback Will Likely is not one of them. If Likely is not in class or on the practice field, Taylor says Likely is often just in the Terps' defensive back team meeting room evaluating film. People can see Likely's talent.

When former Maryland star Shawne Merriman watched the Seattle Seahawks play the Green Bay Packers earlier this month, he saw a Seahawks offense that found different, creative ways to get the ball in the hands of their top playmaker -- wide receiver Percy Harvin. The Seahawks lined Harvin up in the backfield, used Harvin as a traditional wide receiver and also put him in motion and handed him the ball on jet sweeps. In all, Harvin touched the ball 11 times. Merriman said he wants to see the Terps do more of those types of things to get the ball in the hands of wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long.

COLLEGE PARK -- After struggling through what he called "unacceptable" performances in the first two games of the season, Maryland football quarterback C.J. Brown declared: "As I go, the offense will go, I understand that. " Said last Tuesday without a hint of bravado, it's about as close to a boast the sixth-year graduate student can muster. Considering the way things started out for Brown and the Terps on Saturday, that statement could have bitten him. But it's also the truth, which, depending on how you look at Brown's performance in a 40-37 defeat to West Virginia (2-1)
