COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland head coach Randy Edsall has been sparse on details about injuries and other matters of availability so far in training camp, but opened up with some information at the team’s media day on Monday in College Park.

- Junior offensive lineman Evan Mulrooney returned to Maryland’s team facility after spending time in the hospital being treated for what Edsall called a “viral infection.” Though Mulrooney has been released from the hospital, there exists no timetable for his return to the football field, which will take place when doctors clear him.

- Junior defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson is attending to a personal matter. Edsall elaborated Monday on the subject:

“I spoke to Quinton today and he’s in good spirits, but in our program it’s all about their faith first and foremost and then the family, then academics, then football and then the social so our thoughts and prayers are with him and his wife and his family and hopefully everything works out well from that standpoint.”

- Freshman offensive lineman Sean Christie will have surgery on his injured knee “at some point in time,” Edsall said. He is expected to miss the entire season.

- Junior defensive back Denzel Conyers returned home to attend to a family matter but returned to the team on Saturday night. He resumed his workouts on Sunday.

- Senior wide receiver Deon Long is expected back at practice tomorrow after dealing with an unspecified abdominal injury that Edsall alluded to earlier in the week.

- Edsall concluded by saying the following: “We just have some guys that have some bumps and bruises, which you get in camp, but other than that nothing from a serious nature.”
