Maryland senior LB Cole Farrand accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Farrand is seen by CBS Sports as a borderline draftable player. In line with their thinking, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline ranked Farrand as a Round 7 prospect. "Smart, instinctive linebacker who makes plays with his head and hustle," Pauline wrote. "Constantly around the ball. Quarterbacks the defense. Not a great athlete but has a lot to offer."

The Washington Post reports that Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs will return to practice on Friday.

The Maryland wideout was forced to miss the past two games of the regular season due to a lacerated kidney. Diggs suffered the injury to his kidney during Maryland’s road win at Penn State on November 1st.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline sees Maryland redshirt senior CB Jeremiah Johnson as a "late round bargain who’ll surprise people in camp next summer."

"Entering the 2013 season Maryland had a pair of next level cornerbacks, Dexter McDougle and Jeremiah Johnson, both who went down to injury during the campaign," Pauline wrote. "And while McDougle, a third round pick last April, was well known the 2012 film showed Johnson to be his equal. Initially slow returning from the foot injury which kept him on the sidelines last year, Johnson has shown excellent form in recent weeks. He’s a physical corner with top ball skills and the ability to shut down opponents." Pauline graded the fifth-year senior, limited to three games last year, as a Round 6 prospect in the preseason. He says Johnson is "well schooled in all facets of the position."

Maryland senior WR Deon Long has accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine game.

Some might argue Long has outplayed Stefon Diggs this season despite what the box scores say. Long is a lean receiver who has seen time on the outside in Maryland's offense.

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 freshman WR Juwann Winfree has been suspended for two games for violating the school's student-athlete code of conduct.

The heralded receiver recruit had recorded 10 catches for 144 yards and two touchdowns this season, but had recently seen a jump in playing time due to injuries at receiver. See Stefon Diggs.

Maryland redshirt senior DT Darius Kilgo will play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Kilgo has plenty of experience as a nose tackle. At 6'3/319 pounds he will need to use his hands and leverage to win against interior offensive linemen.

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.
Nov 10 - 11:22 AM

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.
Nov 4 - 1:44 PM

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 redshirt senior QB C.J. Brown left Saturday's game versus Iowa in the third quarter with a back injury, but returned to finish the game.

As Brown was falling to the ground on a tackle, an Iowa defender dove in and landed on his back. Brown lay facedown for several minutes before he was evaluated on the sideline and eventually ushered to the locker room. He returned with about 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter. "It definitely scared me because the whole right side of my back tightened up, locked up," said Brown, who suffered an upper-trapezius injury in his back. "I've got to look at the film. I thought it was a late hit. He got me on top of the head, so my neck and my shoulders are a little bit tight. … But I felt like I could go, and I was able to go back out there and finish." The Terps will monitor Brown's status closely throughout the week. If Brown has to miss any time, No. 3 quarterback Perry Hills will play, as backup Caleb Rowe (ACL) is out for the year.
Oct 18 - 9:25 PM

Maryland redshirt junior QB Caleb Rowe will miss the remainder of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

The team announced the news on Saturday after Rowe hurt his left knee during a non-contact drill in Tuesday’s practice. As long as he's healthy, C.J. Brown will be the undisputed starter for the rest of the season. Rowe, meanwhile, should be the starter next season, after Brown graduates -- assuming he's recovered in time.
Oct 18 - 8:04 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.
