Maryland junior WR Stephon Diggs (kidney) will not play against Michigan on Saturday.
The receiver is currently rehabbing from a lacerated kidney and has not practiced this week. The Maryland coaching staff had already insinuated that it was very possible that Diggs would miss the rest of the regular season, so his absence in the second-to-last game doesn't come as much of a surprise.

Maryland HC Randy Edsall wouldn't comment on junior WR Stefon Diggs' kidney injury, saying "We'll move forward next week."

"I don't comment on injuries," Edsall said adding that "we're in pretty good shape right now" and "what we've got to do is enhance where we are." Diggs suffered a lacerated kidney against Penn State on November 1 and it has been widely reported that the receiver will most likely miss the rest of the season. He wouldn't have played on Saturday, anyway, as he's currently serving a suspension for pushing an official in a pre-game scrum with the Nittany Lions. Quarterback C.J. Brown feels that the team will be OK. "That's the beauty of having depth, guys who have experience. The offense isn't going to change too much." With the NFL Draft looming, it's possible Diggs has played his last game for the Terrapins.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs will likely miss the remainder of the season due to a lacerated kidney, according to Matt Zenitz.

Zenitz clarifies Diggs will miss at least the end of the regular season. The receiver was injured against Penn State, and the ailment was previously described as a midsection injury. He was set to be suspended for a game after contacting an official, but that might never happen if Diggs decides to declare for the NFL. He suffered a major leg injury last year.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs might miss more action beyond his one game suspension after suffering a midsection injury against Penn State.

Diggs remained on the field for some time after taking a hit to his "kidney area" in the fourth quarter when diving into the endzone. Diggs remained in the game. The receiver missed a considerable amount of time last season due to a broken fibula.

The Big Ten suspended Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs for one game after Diggs made contact with an official prior to Saturday's game against Penn State

Diggs and other Maryland players were involved in a pre-game incident with Penn State, and the receiver's right hand made contact with an official's face. He was not ejected from the game, but conference officials determined the action warranted a suspension. Diggs will miss next Saturday's tilt against Michigan State. As a player, he's a burner whose best attribute is his straight-line speed, comparable to somebody like Ted Ginn Jr., as CBS Sports Dane Brugler noted over the summer.
Nov 3 - 5:02 PM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught six balls for 53 yards in Saturday's 20-19 win over Penn State.

Diggs is most often compared to Ted Ginn Jr. This is because he is a linear athlete; that is, he can beat a defense deep, or take a kick return to the house, if he has a straight-line path to the end zone. The 6-foot, 190-pounder will eventually find a role in the NFL, but his inability to pick up chunk yardage in less-than-ideal circumstances limits his future effectiveness, as well as his draft value.
Nov 2 - 2:25 PM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught nine passes for 130 yards and a touchdown in the school's 38-31 win over Iowa.

Diggs took a screen pass 53 yards for a touchdown, showcasing vision and straight-line speed. This might not be a common opinion, but Diggs is a linear athlete and his role might be impacted because of it. There has been no indication if he will declare for the draft or not.
Oct 18 - 4:50 PM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught seven passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in a 52-24 loss to Ohio State on Saturday.

Caleb Rowe's four-yard scoring pass to Diggs pulled the Terps to within three touchdowns early in the fourth quarter. Needing a perfect 13 minutes of football to give themselves any sort of a chance, Rowe threw a pick-six five minutes later to eliminate any chance of victory. With his seven catches today, Diggs is left with 36 catches, two more than he had last year in an injury-shortened campaign. He's also got 450 yards and three touchdowns.
Oct 4 - 5:19 PM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught six passes for 112 yards and a touchdown in a 37-15 win over Indiana on Saturday.

C.J. Brown's 29-yard scoring pass to Diggs put the Terps ahead 17-6 midway through the second frame. Diggs, one of the Big 10's most dangerous outside playmakers, has 29 catches for 398 yards and a pair of scores. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler compares Diggs to Ted Ginn Jr.
Sep 27 - 6:18 PM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught six passes for 56 yards in the school's 34-20 win over Syracuse.

Diggs added 12 yards on one carry too. Watching Diggs, he is far more straight-line and less laterally explosive than people initially noted. Perhaps the injury only added to that, but Diggs plays an on the ground game as is in the mold of a "smaller" receiver.
Sep 20 - 5:28 PM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught five passes for 127 yards and a touchdown in the school's 40-37 loss to West Virginia.

Most of Diggs' production occurred on a single play of 77 yards. In fact, some will think Diggs looks less explosive than he did prior to last year's injury. Rotoworld's Josh Norris thinks Diggs is a straight-line player.
Sep 13 - 3:57 PM

Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs had seven receptions for 50 yards in a 24-17 win versus South Florida on Saturday.

The Terps entered the fourth quarter with a deficit but outscored the Bulls 10-0 in the frame to pull out the victory. Diggs, you'll recall, is returning from a fractured fibula. Prior to that injury, which occurred last October, Diggs had 34 receptions for 587 yards (17.3 yards per catch) and three TDs in seven games. Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said in July that Diggs is "one of the best players in the country." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote over the summer that Diggs reminded him of Ted Ginn Jr.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wants to see more consistency from Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs before he'll bump up his Round 6 grade.

"Diggs is another wide out to watch," Pauline wrote. "He has the ability to stretch the field and make big plays from the line of scrimmage. One could argue he should be rated higher than our sixth round grade but I’ll wait for Diggs to up his game and show more consistency before doing so." Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said in July that Diggs is "one of the best players in the country." Prior to suffering a fractured fibula last October, Diggs had 34 receptions for 587 yards (17.3 yards per catch) and three TDs in seven games.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer believes Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs is "one of the best players in the country."

"I'm 110 percent," Diggs said when asked about the major leg injury he suffered last year. "They say when you break your leg you get a little taller and a little faster, and I got both, I think." Diggs will be labeled as one of the nation's best playmakers. We loved his long speed, but feel Diggs was a bit straight-linish in his play style.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs reminds him of "former OSU WR Ted Ginn Jr."

"Maryland WR Stefon Diggs reminds me a lot of former OSU WR Ted Ginn Jr....both the good and the bad. Hopefully he stays healthy in 2014," Brugler tweeted. Diggs suffered a fractured fibula back in October. Prior to injury, Diggs was one of the more dynamic offensive weapons in the country. Unfortunately for Diggs, he only played in seven games as a sophomore and had 34 receptions for 587 yards (17.3 yards per catch) and three TDs in seven games for Maryland in 2013.
