An attorney for Jordan McNair's family sent a letter Thursday to Maryland's board of regents urging the body not to release a report of an investigation into the football player's June death before the family has a chance to review it.
The 17-member board is expected to convene Friday and will see for the first time the report prepared by consulting firm Walters Inc., which was hired to investigate the May 29 team workout at which the 19-year old McNair suffered exertional heatstroke. He died 15 days later in a hospital.
Billy Murphy, the attorney representing McNair's parents, said the family deserves to see the findings first.
"Jordan's parents do not want to learn the details about what happened to their son by watching television tomorrow and seeing a press conference," the letter stated.
Buckeyes' Bosa out
Ohio State All-America defensive end Nick Bosa will be out indefinitely after having surgery for a lower-abdomen injury. He was injured Saturday.
Coach Urban Meyer said Bosa had surgery on a "core muscle." Meyer didn't provide a timetable for his return.
Also, Ohio State assistant Ryan Day earned an extra $487,000 for steering the Buckeyes during Meyer's suspension, the school revealed. He will receive that in a lump sum next week. Day acted as head coach from Aug. 1 through last Sunday while Meyer served a three-game suspension for mismanagement of former assistant Zach Smith, who was accused of domestic violence.
Huskers add a game
Nebraska will play Bethune-Cookman on Oct. 27 to make up for the game against Akron that was canceled because of inclement weather.
Bethune-Cookman is a Football Championship Subdivision team that's 1-2 after losing to Florida Atlantic last Saturday. FCS teams are allowed 11 regular-season games, but the NCAA granted the Wildcats a waiver that lets them play a 12th game to accommodate the Cornhuskers.
Nebraska will pay Bethune-Cookman a guarantee of $800,000.
