Tight end Lansford Watson will undergo a second MRI exam to determine the severity of a knee injury, Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen said.
Friedgen said team medical personnel believes Watson has a slight tear of an MCL, but don't expect the junior to miss time this season.
"They think he cna get by with a brace and want to make sure his meniscus is all right," Friedgen said. "Lansford wants to try to play. If we can get by with the brace, we'll probably operate after the season if everything goes well."
Watson is competing with sophomore Devonte Campbell for the Terrapins' starting tight end job.
The Brooklyn, N.Y., native had seven catches for 66 yards a a season ago, and owns 17 receptions for 181 yards and a touchdown for his career.
