Maryland RB questionable for Eastern Michigan

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Maryland running back Da'Rel Scott, the team's leading rusher with 135.7 yards per game, is questionable for Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder, coach Ralph Friedgen said on his Sunday teleconference.

Scott will be limited to non-contact drills this week.

Scott rushed 19 times for 87 yards and two touchdowns against Cal, despite playing less than three quarters because of a shoulder injury.

Friedgen also said he might make a change to the kicking game, as Obi Egekeze has now missed five straight field goals, including a 27-yard attempt this past weekend.

"I'm still thinking that over," Friedgen said. "Before I make any decisions like that I probably want to talk to our staff and to Obi. We've gotta get better in that area, one way or the other."

If he did name a new placekicker, Friedgen said it would likely be either Nick Wallace, a redshirt sophomore transfer from Indiana (Pa.) or walk-on Mike Barbour.
