A few quick hits from Ralph Friedgen's Sunday teleconference ...
* On quarterback Jamarr Robinson, Friedgen had a basic statement: "He'll play this week." Robinson suffered a bruised throwing shoulder in Saturday's 31-17 loss at West Virginia.
* As for backup quarterback Danny O'Brien, Friedgen offered two answers.
Go ahead and pick one for your liking:
"Probably the same as what it’s been" or "Status quo."
Given how Maryland waited to plug O'Brien in with an ankle sprain on Saturday, he probably should be considered questionable --- at best --- to face Florida International this week.
* The latest on left tackle Justin Gilbert is fairly nebulous.
There's good news and bad news, but it sure seems like he'll be missing for some time after suffering a left knee injury.
"He has some swelling, not as much as what they anticipated," Friedgen said. "They think he has a cartilage injury because they hear clicking. They're going to do an MRI [exam] tomorrow and we’ll know more tomorrow."
* New injury of note: Reserve linebacker Darin Drakeford, who hurt his shoulder on a day he made four tackles (three for loss) against West Virginia. No word on its severity.
Just what Maryland needs: Another loss at linebacker.
