Maryland releases summary of May 29 workout

The University of Maryland released a summary on Thursday regarding the review into the death of Jordan McNair.

According to the summary, the team gathered for a supervised workout at approximately 4:15 p.m. on May 29 at the Varsity Team House Practice Fields.

The workout consisted of a warm-up, baseline running drills and position-specific drills, and head coach DJ Durkin was present, according to the summary.

All players that participated in the workout received medical clearance from the team physician, as is required.

After the workout concluded, trainers noticed McNair was “having problems recovering.” Trainers provided care and McNair was moved to the athletic training room for more observation and treatment.

Staff then contacted medical personnel and called 911.

Emergency personnel arrived at approximately 6 p.m. and McNair was transported to a hospital, where he died June 13.

The review was conducted by Walters, Inc., a sports medicine consulting group.

According to the summary, “all players have resumed workouts and official practices will begin Aug. 3.”

Damonte Dodd arrives in court

Former Maryland basketball player Damonte Dodd arrived in court Thursday morning for a pre-trial hearing regarding rape and sexual assault charges.

Dodd was released on his own recognizance, but was ordered to stay away from College Park, have no contact with the victim and witnesses in the case, as well as surrender his passport to his attorney, Thomas C. Mooney.

Last week, he was charged with raping a woman in November after allegedly having sex with her while she was intoxicated.
