Randy Edsall's keys for the match up against FSU

Maryland was expecting the long awaited return of wide receiver Tyrek Cheeseboro for this weekend's showdown against eighth ranked Florida State, but it appears both he and the Terps will have to wait just a little longer. 

The redshirt sophmore suffered a concussion as a result of a bicycle accident early Tuesday morning, according to head coach Randy Edsall, and has been listed as 'out' on the team's injury report for Saturday's game. 

“He’s lucky [that it wasn't more serious],” Edsall said of the injury, via The Washington Post. “He’s lucky. He’s a fortunate young man. I think sometimes with situations like that, being an athlete, being in that kind of condition that he was in, I think that helped. But he’s very lucky.”

The Baltimore native was known for playing a valuable role on special teams last season, making his name as a speedy gunner who excelled at covering kickoff and punt returns. However, a series of injuries -- including a previous concussion --  have prevented him from returning to action so far in 2013. 

The full injury report is as follows:

DB Milan Collins, Ankle, Out for the season

OL JaJuan Dulaney, Knee, Out for the season

DB Dexter McDougle, Shoulder, Out for the season

DL Mike Minter, Knee, Out for the season

DL Ty Tucker, Knee, Out for the season

LS Christian Carpenter, Knee, Out

WR Tyrek Cheeseboro, Head, Out

RB Tyler Cierski, Calf, Out

K Adam Greene, Quad, Out

DB Jeremiah Johnson, Toe, Out

OL Nick Klemm, Foot, Out

WR Daniel Adams, Knee, Probable

OL Silvano Altamirano, Back, Probable

DL Zeke Riser, Foot, Probable
